About the Artist

Tansi / Hello! I'm JC Bear, a Nêhiyaw + Settler artist from AB + SK

Tansi Maskwa is run from my home studio in Tio'tia:ke "Montreal." Here, you will find all things one-of-a-kind produced + fulfilled in-house by me! I started on Etsy in 2021 and launched my own online store in 2022.

The lack of Indigenous representation in contemporary art and media drove me to create my own work.

My school experience includes BFA Photography from 2018–21 and DÉC Graphic Design from 2015–18. Presently, I am working towards my second BFA, majoring in Design.
