Jenna McGuire

 

Jenna McGuireJenna grew up on the north Bruce Peninsula.  She left to get a degree in wildlife biology and scientific illustration and returned to work for Parks Canada in Tobermory in ecological research and nature interpretation.  Her passion is learning about, teaching and preserving traditional Métis skills and knowledge.  Jenna recognizes that Métis art forms capture her people’s history and nature and that traditional art forms such as beading and moccasin making help keep her culture alive.  She likes to use her illustration and communication skills to record knowledge and teach others about nature and history.  As an artist, it is her wish to create art that simply inspires others and hopefully, captures the Métis spirit.
