Calling Me Home

Neepin Auger is a Cree artist, educator and mother. Originally from the Bigstone Cree Nation in northern Alberta, she has been painting for over 10 years, having studied art under her father, Dale Auger, a renowned First Nations artist and author

Utilizing a dramatic and dynamic colour palette, Auger’s energetic pieces are a magnificent representation of elevated simplicity, impactful design and the timelessness of culture and family. Employing a minimalistic dialogue, the artist’s strong use of line and form lend definition to works that present plentiful tableaus bursting with soulfulness.

Auger’s lively works are visual song pieces; melodies in paint that both soothe and delight the senses, bringing to life fables, legends, and tradition. The artist’s work is truly timeless and like the subject matter depicted, remains steeped in magic.
