Artist's Bio

Moses Lunham (Anishnaabe) is an accomplished First Nations artist from the communtiy of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation. A graduate from Fanshawe College's Graphic Art and Design Program (1990) Moses has worked with many First Nations communities in Southwestern Ontario by providing a wide range of art workshops inspired by his culture. "Creating art is a very therapeutic experience. It heals and provides us the opportunity to make connections to story and cultural teachings that are needed for Mino Bimadziwin (A Good Way of Living"). In 2015 Moses was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award for his art from the Anishnaabek Nation. "My work is a reflection of my people (Anishnaabe), their spirituality and ideology."
