Emma Rain Smith

Emma Rain Smith is an Anishinaabe artist from Walpole Island (Bkejwanong) First Nations. She studies Fine Arts with a Studio Major in the Honors Arts and Business at the University of Waterloo. She was the president of the Aboriginal Students Association at UW for two years. As an artist she toys with the theme of communication in her work, working with traditional oral stories to create visual representations of them. She uses traditional Indigenous beading techniques blended with contemporary design elements and technology. The process of beading is very time consuming, the labour of process art bringing a deeper level of meaning to the work. Her work outside of art revolves around education where she works encourage her community and Indigenizing the education systems within Kitchener-Waterloo.
