The Artist: Maxine Noel was born on the Birdtail Reservation in Manitoba, and is Oglala Sioux. A self-taught artist, Maxine is skilled in many media. She seeks to present essential characteristics of the Native people: their sensibilities, generosity and loving nature through the use of fluid images, flowing lines and subtle colours. Maxine has received honours and accolades for her work with Native cultures, and she speaks around the country on art and on social issues, assisting in bridging the gap between Native and non-Native, young and old. Maxine has received excellent response to her work and is now able to devote herself full-time to the creation of art. She signs her artwork with her Sioux name Ioyan Mani, which translates as “Walk Beyond”.
