My Story

Born in Chilliwack, BC, Delreé's parent left Onion Lake Cree Nation, SK to find work.  She has 12 brothers and sisters and is the second youngest.  Delreé always excelled as an artist throughout her life, however, after leaving the oil and gas industry in 2014, she picked up her brushes and started painting realism.  In late 2014, she discovered pointillism and never looked back.  Over the years, she noticed there wasn't a lot of opportunities for indigenous people to show case their arts and crafts.  In 2015, Delreé opened Delreé's Native Art Gallery in Didsbury, AB.  She was enjoying the success of her business until that fateful day when she found out her husband had leukemia.  She made a hard decision to close her gallery in the spring of 2018, so she could look after her husband full time.  However, he passed away 5 months into his treatments.  After a year of floundering, of not painting, and visiting friends of family, she picked up her brushes and now, paints full time at her home in BC.  Delree's Native Art Gallery is on her heart and her mind.  

Whats Next?  Delreé plans on hosting artisan retreats in a cabin located in Ferguson, BC.  Stay tuned for more info!
