As an emerging Métis artist, Katherine Boyer’s practice engages with crossover between traditional and non-traditional printmaking, sculpture and installation. Her recent work explores her Métissage, familial memories and the notion of inheritance by situating historically significant Métis materials and techniques (such as beadwork, traditional Métis rug hooking and loom weaving) within the structure and framework of domestic architecture and its furnishings. Boyer currently works as Gallery and Collections Coordinator at the First Nations University of Canada. While she’s in Winnipeg, she’ll be conducting research related to her family’s Métis design history (and related histories), meeting with Sherry Farrell Racette and participating in local beading groups.
Katherine Boyer is a graduate of the University of Regina with a BFA in Sculpture and an emphasis on Printmaking. As an emerging artist, Boyer's work is a crossover between traditional and non-traditional printmaking, sculptural and installation work and has received multiple awards and scholarships including a Saskatchewan Arts Board grant.
