Tracy Bradley is a Metis artist from Treaty 6, certified reiki master, an hypnosis instructor, and a doula with Indigenous Birth of Alberta. Tracy has been working with stones since childhood when her grandfather passed his love of jewellery making onto her; watching the stones be tumbled and then be made into things of beauty! She has been taught beading by her sister. Her pieces, inspired by her name ᐊᐢᑮᕀᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ askiyiskwew, are uniquely combined for their energetic qualities and for their relationship to the earth.
Tracy uses traditional metis beadwork, sculpted wool felt, natural stones, upcycled fur, birch bark, fibres, canvas, acrylic, watercolour, ink, oils and canvas as mediums. She writes poetry and stories, and enjoys ceremony as a means of learning, connecting, health and inspiration.
