Jessica Winters - Inuit Artist is an emerging artist and curator from Nunatsiavut, currently residing in Makkovik, Newfoundland. After completing her BA in Biology, Ecology and Conservation at Memorial University in St. John’s, NL, Jessica returned home where she continues to develop her artistic practice, guided by the careful instruction of her family and community members. Her work, which centers on colourful scenes of life in Nunatsiavut, has been featured in group exhibitions such as The Wish 150 Mosaic created by TakingITGlobal in collaboration with Fishing for Success (2017), and Nunatsiavut: Our Beautiful Land at La Guilde in Montreal (2019). Combining her passions for art and biology, Jessica hopes to advocate for the preservation and conservation of Inuit homelands and ways of life, such as access to traditional food sources.
