Joane Cardinal-Schubert

The work of Joane Cardinal-Schubert is a powerful integration of historical symbolic motifs personal “herstory” and political events. The result is a potent visual exploration of subjects particularly significant to the native community in Canada and an important influence in the development of deeper understanding by the population at large. It is a dynamic body of work unique in its subject matter, its approach and its execution. Schubert has become one of this country’s most honoured and respected artists not only because of her talent, but also because of her strong cultural statements and social perceptions. 

Joane was born in Red Deer Alberta in 1942 and lived a grand and artistic life up until 2009.
