My People, by Aaron Paquette

Aaron Paquette is one of Canada’s premiere First Nations artists known for his bright colours, strong lines and for sharing new ways of looking at age-old experiences and beliefs. Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Aaron has been creating art for the past 20 years. He apprenticed and has become both a Cathedral Stained Glass artist and a Goldsmith, influences of which can be seen in the line and structure of his paintings – displayed in various galleries throughout the country. Aaron is currently serving as the Edmonton City Counsellor for Ward 4.

Aaron Paquette, a descendant of the Cree and Cherokee, is a young artist with immense talent. In addition to his acrylic works, Aaron has apprenticed in stain glass and goldsmithing. “I am an artist. In my paintings, I seek to nurture a relationship with the viewer. I try to use colours that are calming, but also fresh and exciting … In each painting I try to include a story that is meaningful to me and encourages discussion. I hope that my works can act as part of a catalyst for greater understanding … My work almost always features an aspect of nature and our relationship with the earth.
