Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal is a multimedia artist, community activist, and perpetual learner. Born in Lloydminister, Saskatchewan, she has been a visitor to Mohkinstsis (Calgary) for seven years. Cardinal traces her ancestral roots back to both the Saddle Lake Cree Nation and the once German-occupied lands of Ukraine. Graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from ACAD in 2015, Cardinal has since been a recipient of the National BMO Art! Competition Award as well as the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Young Artist Award in 2017. Her work was featured in the Alberta Biennial in 2017 at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton; and more recently, her first solo exhibition at the Glenbow Museum curated by Nancy Tousley entitled “One New Work: Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal Feet on the Ground”. Cardinal’s work continues to be a reflection of the teachings she receives along her journey; it is an invitation for others to become part of the process, to partake in its making.
