"My life has always been dedicated to making beautiful things.”

Olivya Leblanc is a Slovene, French Canadian and First Nations portrait photographer, art director & beadworker from Tkaronto (Toronto; Mohawk word meaning "where there are trees standing in the water"). Skilled in various mediums such as ceramics, beading and illustration, she uses her art to further explore, honour and understand her identity and what it means to be a mixed indigenous woman. Armed with ancestral wisdom, she seeks out to reveal the beauty in the world and others around her, and is intrigued by the memories that touch us.
