CURRICULUM VITAE

Biography

Nathalie Bertin is a multi-disciplinary artist from Toronto, Ontario, Canada with documented roots in Michilimackinac & Nipissing. She is of Métis, French, Anishinaabe and Omàmiwininiwak (a.k.a. Algonquin) ancestry. Bertin is a member of the Waawaashkeshi (Deer Clan).

Bertin’s art style is often described as luminescent, energetic, bold and colourful. A self-confessed “colour junkie,” she is inspired by the way light filters through stained glass windows, the layering of colours in printing processes, Woodland artists and the northern European masters.

Bertin’s current body of work focuses on positive images of indigenous people as a means of confronting their romanticized depictions as seen throughout art history. She focuses especially on the women role models who have had an impact on her. Her aim is to present a different view of indigenous people—one that is positive, powerful, knowledgeable, gentle and kind.

Several of Bertin’s projects are also inspired by traditional storytelling. In 2018, Bertin was awarded an Ontario Arts Council project grant for the creation of a series of beaded "Moccushions©" that interpret traditional stories for future generations. The project led to her self-publishing her bilingual book “Loup Garou, Mocassins and Metis Folklore / Loup Garou, moccasins et folklore metis” in 2020. The project is scheduled for exhibition in 2021 and 2022.

Previously, some of Bertin’s story illustrations about the northern lights were reproduced by the Royal Canadian Mint on collector coins in 2013, 2014 and 2015. She was also selected to design a special coin series on the Seven Grandfather Teachings which she obtained overwhelming support for from her Anishinaabe kin, friends and elders.

In 2012, Nathalie Bertin created and curated “This is My Song: Perspectives from Contemporary Native Women” at The Art Space, Huntsville, Ontario. Participating Artists included Kayeri Akweks, Lee Claremont, Raven Davis, Lee Deranger, Lita Fontaine, LauraLee K Harris, Inuk360, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Janice Toulouse. The exhibition was to introduce contemporary indigenous artists and set up as a forum for discussion to bridge the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous people.

Continuing in this vein, in 2014, Bertin curated “Indigenesse” at The Aurora Cultural Centre, Aurora, Ontario. From the Artists Statement: "Indiginesse is a culmination by valiant, contemporary Native women artists working to offer healing, education, and to inform all communities. May this exhibition bring greater compassion, understanding, health, and peace as we all seek to offer responsible caring towards all of our many communities." Participating Artists included Kayeri Akweks, Christi Belcourt, Lee Claremont, Raven Davis, Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuck, Lee Deranger, Lita Fontaine, LauraLee K Harris, Maria Hupfield, Nadya Kwandibens, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Shelley Niro, Janice Toulouse.

These curatorial experiences continue to push Nathalie to develop community based projects. In 2020, Bertin co-created “Breathe. A collection of traditionally crafted masks demonstrating resiliency through 21st century pandemic” with friend and artisan Lisa Shepherd. The project started as a Facebook group for the purpose of helping artists work through emotions brought on pandemic. It has been featured in three CBC articles, a CBC Arts documentary and exhibitions booked for 2021 in Canada and the US. A school program has also been developed in collaboration with First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education Lead Colinda Clyne.

In her commitment to community, Nathalie Bertin also spends time working in education as a visiting artist and knowledge keeper. In 2019, she collaborated with Beausoleil First Nation and Springwater Provincial Park to create an art installation that would serve as a catalyst for teachings of indigenous ways of knowing. Bertin also visits many schools in several Anglophone and Francophone boards across the province to deliver a variety of workshops on Metis arts. Since 2017, she has also become a community partner and co-presenter in “First Nations and Métis Math Voices Project” (Dr. Ruth Beatty, Lakehead University), “Indigenous Education and Mathematics Conference” (Dr. Ruth Beatty, Lakehead University) and “Culturally Responsive Math, First Nations & Metis Math Voices” (Nelson PL Series Winter 2020). Bertin also created “Project: Odemin” as a means of fundraising for educational community project that need assistance getting off the ground.

In addition to many book illustration and commercial art projects, Nathalie Bertin’s art can also be found in collections of the Government of Manitoba, Government of Alberta, corporate organizations and private collectors across Canada, the U.S., Europe and Africa.
