Calendar featuring art by Sioux artist Maxine Noel.
Maxine was born in Manitoba of Santee Oglala Sioux parents. She spent her early childhood on her mother’s reserve but she left at the age of six to attend an Indian residential school.
Maxine’s early career as a legal secretary was soon overshadowed by her love of painting and drawing. She took a course in advanced design where a teacher noticed Maxine’s tendency toward linear expression and encouraged her in the use of shape and line to suggest movement.
Since those early days Maxine has mastered the skills of painting and drawing plus the processes of serigraphy, etching and stone lithography. Recently she has turned her talents to the creation of editions in cast paper and limited-edition bronze castings.
