Amy Malbeuf is a Métis visual artist and cultural tattoo practitioner from Rich Lake, Alberta in Treaty Six territory.
She lives and works on unceded Mi’kmaq territory in Terence Bay, Nova Scotia with her partner in life and art Jordan Bennett. Malbeuf creates art works in mediums such as animal hair tufting and embroidery, beadwork, sculpture and installation. As a textiles based artist it was a natural transition for Amy to apply her hand-sewing skills to the skin-stitch tattoo method. Amy tattoos in both hand-poke and skin-stitch techniques, however she specializes in the skin-stitch method. Amy is focused on the revival of Indigenous women’s tattooing, particularly within Cree tattoo practices.
Amy holds a Native Cultural Arts Instructor Certificate from Portage College and an MFA degree in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia Okanagan. In 2015 she co -founded Earthline Tattoo Collective with Jordan Bennett and Dion Kaszas.
