Rosalie Favell

 

Rosalie Favell

Rosalie Favell was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB. Much of her work draws upon both her family history and Métis (Cree/English) heritage that goes back many generations in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. She uses many sources to present a complex self-portrait of her experiences as a contemporary Aboriginal woman. In addition to scouring her family albums for visual material, she finds inspiration in popular culture and has incorporated a number of warrior women from television series and movies into her works. Her recent work undertakes a spiritual quest, drawing upon a number of religions and beliefs. In 1998, she earned an MFA from the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque.
