About the Artist

Artist Kevin L. Pee-ace was born in Kelvington, Saskatchewan and is a member of the Yellowquill First Nation and Peter Chapman First Nation. Art and education have been constants throughout his career, and this led to a collaborative approach in creating class murals with many schools throughout Saskatchewan. He currently resides in Saskatoon, SK painting full-time. His current style depicts traditional floral motifs reminiscent of beadwork, a homage to his late kokom, who created beautiful works on moss bags, moccasins, and saddles. This new style is a modern fusion of two worlds, one traditional and one contemporary. The importance of family is prominent throughout the works, the vibrant colours represents the joy of life, it is meant to inspire hope, success, and happiness.
