Angela Marston

Coast Salish Nation (Chemainus)
 
Angela was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia in November 1975. Because of her parents, both talented artists, Angela had the opportunity to learn many traditional Coast Salish skills from an early age.

Beginning to weave cedar bark when she was fourteen, Angela studied first with Kathy Edgar and later Minney Peters. The entire process of collecting the cedar roots and pulling and cleaning the bark, she finds deeply rewarding.

In the past few years Angela has been awarded many impressive opportunities. She was invited to participate in the paddle show “Timeless Journey”, put on by Steinbruek Native Gallery in Seattle, WA. The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria asked her to represent the emerging artists of the Coast Salish region for a weaving show titled “SMASH”.  Recently, Angela was contracted to design and make ties and scarves as staff uniforms for the Vancouver International Airport. Planning to further pursue her interest in fashion design, she also designs and paints silk scarves.

Angela also has a serious interest in the uses of Coast Salish traditional medicine. Using plants collected from the forest, she makes soaps and lotions for people with sensitive skin.

Recognized by the Canada Council and the First Peoples Cultural Council, Angela’s works can be found in many public galleries and private collections, including the permanent collection at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.
 

She is excited to push the boundaries of the Coast Salish art form and create new and original art pieces for everyone to enjoy.
