Olivia Gilbertson

Olivia Gilbertson is an Indigenous artist attending Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Being Métis, she fuses Ojibwe traditions and stories with her fascination with textiles and craftsmanship. In 2017, Gilbertson was commissioned for a painting by the Deputy Commissioner of Indigenous Affairs at Queen’s to honour the Anishinaabe lands the campus was built on. In addition, she was featured in the Union Gallery’s exhibition Drawn In and spent the summer of 2017 as an art teacher in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Gilbertson is currently in her fourth year of the Fine Art program at Queen’s University, minoring in Art History and studying History.
