Ahtahkakoop Cree | Tsuut’ina Nation | Welsh

Bada Jean is an Indigenous and Welsh visual artist from Treaty 6 and 7 territory. Her roots come from Ahtakakoop Cree Nation and Tsuut’ina Nation. She grew up in Alberta and Saskatchewan, and now lives and works on W̱SÁNEĆ & Lək̓ʷəŋən territory.

Bada Jean is mostly a large scale painter and mural artist, but also has been recently creating prints and stickers to make her work more accessible. She wants to share the beauty of her culture with others, and represents that within her art. In her artwork, you see plants, animals, nature and other elements from her Indigenous culture. She is learning her language and uses Cree syllabics in her art as well. She uses bright, bold colours, and wants to spread happiness with her art and celebrate her culture.
