ABOUT ME

Hi All,

I am Barbara Benwell, an artist, educator and mother from Thunder Bay which is seated on the traditional lands of Fort William First Nation,
Signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty.  I am grateful to live, work, go to school and raise a family on this land. I recognize that this acknowledgement is not enough and that I need to actively work against colonialism. 

I have an Honours Bachelor of Fine Art, a Bachelor of Education and I recently completed a Masters in Social Justice with a specialization in
Women’s Studies from Lakehead University.

I have made this website to compile the work I have done in the program surrounding motherhood, art and social justice.
