Louise Solomon

Louise Solomon is an Ojibwe artist and “urban Indian” from downtown Toronto. Although she was born and raised in downtown Toronto she has always had a strong connection to her Ojibwe roots and Reserve which is Cape Croker First Nations. Louise’s love for art was nourished at an early age by her Grandmother. She would spend time with her after school sculpting, painting pictures or learning how to bead. She attended the University of Guelph where she received her Bachelor of Arts, where she specialized in Sculpture and Extended Media. Afterwards she went on to study Jewellery Methods at George Brown College and now she makes pieces of jewellery that are edgy and mainstream but still embody the spiritual and cultural values of her Ojibwe traditions.
