Jake (Jacqueline) Freeman of ManitobaMade creates wearable art pieces for all to enjoy. Jacqueline is Michif from the homeland of the Métis Nation and Treaty 1 Territory. Her ancestors include the Fleury, Delorme, and Grant lines from Assiniboia. Holding a Bachelor of Science degree form the University of Manitoba, Jake appreciates the inspiration of each piece and believes that its new owner has a connection to it as well. Working with materials like beads, leather, birch bark, quills, feathers, and caribou hair – her pieces are evolving as she learns new skills, networks with other artists, and reconnects with her history, ancestry, and the land. Jake works full time and creates as a passion. Beginning around 2010 with small pointillism pieces that she used to do with her late mother, her art leaned to creating wearable jewellery pieces that have been sent to New Zealand, Korea, and across Canada. ake has just moved to Nex̱wlélex̱m (Bowen Island, BC) which is unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples (Skwxwú7mesh, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Nations). Jake hopes to continue to create unique pieces inspired by nature in her new surroundings.
