- ABOUT THE ARTIST
Based in Vancouver, BC, Susan Point is a celebrated Musqueam artist working in the Coast Salish tradition of her ancestors. She creates fine art and public sculptural artworks in a variety of media. The use of her ancestral visual language is complemented by contemporary concepts, non traditional materials, and innovative design elements. She notes, "Coast Salish art has forever been a way to honour and remember significant details of our social lives. My hope is that my children remember to tell not only our cultural accounts, but also their own stories as well."
