Aiona Anderson

Aiona was bornAiona Anderson into the N'tlakapkmuk (Thompson) nation of Indigenous people near Lytton, British Columbia, and spent her early years living with her family on an isolated subsistence farm.  Keenly aware of her spiritual heritage and bonding, in her painting Aiona reflects a fusion of traditional themes and visions with modern techniques and materials.

Her inspiration comes from her own life experiences filtered through the humanistic and spiritual insights that spring from her cultural roots.  Returning to universal foundations of vision, light, space, movement and color, she works to express the ancient through a modernistic veil.
