Dianne Patychuk is a Toronto artist with prairie roots. She worked as a nurse and community health planner for over 30 years. She has been exhibiting her art since 2002. Since 2015, her paintings are inspired by the ‘calls to action’ in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report and the responsibility of settler society to atone for and undo the harms of colonialism past and present. Proceeds from her paintings support youth initiatives in northern First Nations communities.
