Authentic Indigenous Art
Artist: Shawna Boulette Grapentine
Cultural Background: Cree-Ojibway, Manitoba
Shawna Boulette Grapentine is a Cree-Ojibway, born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was raised in the small Metis community of Manigotogan on the northeastern shores of Lake Winnipeg and is a member of the Hollow Water First Nation.
Known for using fine detail and vibrant colours in her paintings, Shawna learned at an early age that she had a great passion for painting, sketching, and creating art. She is proud to have been part of the Frontier School Division, who provided her with a strong foundation for the arts.
“Each of my paintings contains a piece of my heart and soul, childhood memories and silent prayers for guidance and strength in helping make a difference in the world. It has taken time and maturity to pursue a full-time career with my artwork business.”
Moon & Back Custom Arts has been in operation since 2010, producing more inspiring art pieces each year, gaining recognition across Canada and the United States. The name originated from a children’s story book that Shawna shared with her son, relating to her unconditional love for him.
The artist is paid a royalty on the sale of this product.
