COLLEEN 'S BIO
Hi pals! My name is Colleen Fiddler (she/her/they/them) and I’m a Métis mixed media artist currently living in Canada, on Treaty 6 Land, with my partner and our dogs Emmylou & Kelpie. I have a background in photography and a Fine Arts Diploma. I’m a junior artist at Hidden Gem Tattoo Studio in Edmonton, Alberta where I joined the team in January of 2023! I’m also a linocut printmaker and occasional illustrator.
My work is inspired by folklore, nature, and medieval and fantasy art, armor, and media. My focus lies in storytelling through whimsical yet dark imagery using black ink.
I would like to acknowledge that I am on the Treaty 6 land of Amiskwaciy-wâskahikan. As a Métis person who is predominantly white passing, I acknowledge the privilege that this offers me. I also recognize that my work as a tattoo artist is a contemporary and heavily westernized adaptation of tattooing’s Indigenous origins. I am extremely privileged to express myself and help my clients heal and mark time using this sacred and ancient practice. I am grateful to be able to work on this land, and to those who care for, and continue to care for this land and it’s traditions. I pledge to commit to advancing reconciliation, fight against systemic racism, and protect my clients.
