Michaela Gilbert (b.2002) is a Secwepemc artist from the  Williams Lake First Nation in British Columbia.
Currently, her fascination lies in the enduring strength and resilience inherent in Indigenous cultures. She questions societal perceptions of Indigenous identity, challenging and redefining embedded narratives. This fascination and inquiry manifest in her work as a celebration of the ordinary, the daily rituals, and the profound connections that define Indigenous life. Beyond exploring indigenous livelihood, her research extends to ideas of world-building in film and photography, delving into themes of transformation, identity in characters, and the vibrant world of colour
With oil paint as her primary medium, she brings her ideas to life through the use of vivid colors and thoughtfully constructed narratives.

 "I try to reach beyond the borders of language working in a contemporary style that is both vibrant and narrative."
