Kataleen Webb is a multi disciplinary textile artist and designer. Webb’s work draws inspiration from her Canadian indigenous Cree cultural background. Her approach is grounded in painterly, quick form expression to allow for an almost spontaneous spur of the moment feel to her imagery. She is able to call upon these skills at Central Saint Martins Textile design from her training in painting at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Kataleen Webb calls back to her indigenous roots through political themes of decolonization. She is heavily inspired by the Inuit printmakers of Cape Dorset, a group of graphic artists heavily active in northern Canada through the 1950’s and 1960’s. One such printmaker; Kenojuak Ashevak’s work can be described as bold and spiritual. Kataleen Webb’s art and design seeks to uplift and celebrate indigenous ways of life and of knowing. Her work aims to bring to the main stream modern and urban indigenous culture. By using materials and techniques used by other Cree people combined with her own experience and worldview as an urban indigenous youth, she creates work that is not afraid to be silly, funny, weird, or sad.
