Artwork at One Sixteen
Nadya Crossman-Serb is a Métis & Libyan multidisciplinary artist who
is inspired by the natural landscapes of Treaty 1, specifically the waterways which flow through the land as she has spent 20 years paddling on the Red, Assiniboine, and Seine Rivers. These bodies of water are home to her and often are the foundation of her art, using beadwork, sewing, and painting. Alongside the influences of nature, Nadya bridges her family backgrounds by including traditional Métis beadwork and Libyan textiles in her projects. Nadya currently resides in Winnipeg and is working on her Indigenous Studies degree, as well as working with Winnipeg Trails and Waterways Recreation as a program leader, running outdoor recreation programs for Indigenous youth.
