Join us for a Markham Reads program in celebration of this year's Markham Reads winning title, Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley!
Meet VIBE Arts artist Caterina Sinclair as she walks us through a beadwork art demonstration and lesson.Caterina Sinclair is a multidisciplinary Saulteaux-Filipina artist and new mom, based in Tkaronto. Self-taught in drawing, painting and beading, Caterina recently started exploring her skills in entrepreneurship when she launched her growing online business, @memengwaakweoriginals, on Instagram earlier this year. Currently, her business and art practice consists of merging her beadwork and abstract India ink paintings, into an online art catalogue for purchasing her work. Despite the challenge of balancing her business, wellbeing, and family as a young entrepreneur and new mom, there’s been great reward in finding a sense of community and belonging within the online Indigenous beading community. As her business grows, Caterina hopes to continue to build her platform into one that encompasses and celebrates the beauty and importance of Indigenous motherhood and entrepreneurship.
