Katherine Boyer is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work is focused on methods bound to textile arts and the handmade, including fabric manipulation, papermaking, woodworking and beadwork. Boyer’s art and research is entrenched in Métis history, material culture and personal family narratives. Through the experience of long, slow, and considerate laborious processes, Boyer contemplates the use of her own Métis body as a conduit for building upon ancestor relations. Boyer has received a BFA from the University of Regina and an MFA at the University of Manitoba. She currently holds a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, School of Art.
