My name is Darbi Hawley, I am Métis artist currently residing in Innisfail, AB. I have been practicing my craft since I was a child and feel very lucky that my family has passed down their talents to their children and grandchildren.
What motivates me as an artist is the natural beauty around me. My main medium is acrylic paint and watercolor but my ultimate passion is sculpting. My grandfather is a well known artist, woodworker and leatherworker within our community. He has taught me many techniques over the years. I see so much beauty in Indigenous culture and love to show the world how I see it through my eyes.
