Candace Lipischak

I am a bilingual Métis multidisciplinary artist from Manitoba. I am also the owner of Fat Daug-Hand carved antler jewelry. Fat Daug is short for Father-Daughter and the love of antler carving passed on from my father to myself. Together we create unique organic pieces made of deer, moose, caribou and wapiti antler. My jewelry is sold at WAG@theForks and online.

As an Franco-Métis arts educator, I have travelled throughout Manitoba, Edmonton, Hay River, Fort Resolution and Lutsel K'e Dene First Nation in the Northwest Territories. It is an honor teaching children and adults about indigenous culture. I have taught jigging, traditional dreamcatcher-making, finger sash weaving, pointillism painting and also shown the students a day in the life of a voyageur.

In 2001 I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS. As a result, I have been asked to share my experiences in schools about the stigmas surrounding mental awareness and disabilities and how art can be used as a tool for expression and healing. The latest workshop took place December 2019 at the CMHR with three francophone schools where we made a collage dedicated to articles found in the Charter of Human Rights.
