Marie Smith

A Picture of Marie SmithA life-time resident of the majestic Gitxsan-Wet'suwet'en Territories, belonging to the Fireweed clan of the house group Tsibasaa, Marie is a versatile artist who works in many mediums such as native art, woodwork, glass art, stonework, sculpture, graphic art, and more.

Marie began her career as an artist through portraiture, design and woodwork; her work evolved to include household accents embellished with native art. She also loves to explore contemporary expressions of native art and incorporate this in her graphic design for CD covers, cards and glass 'Raindrops'.

In addition, Marie has collaborated with other artisans to develop new expressions of art such as the garden stones and the 'Gitxsan Toolkit' collection.

 

A sample of the 'Raindrops that Marie has designedMuch of Marie's work is inspired from our native ancestry and legends which reflect the beauty of the Gitxsan culture and land. Here Marie has collaborated with a Stained glass artisan to design these stunning 'Raindrops.'

 

Moreover, Marie serves as 'mentor' to the "Youth Helping Youth Mentorship Program," a program dedicated to the revitalization of cultural learning and insuring that this cultural learning is accessible to all our youth.
