Meet The Artist

Mel Beaulieu (they/them) is a member of Metepenagiag First Nation, living and working in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Mel blends traditional craftsmanship with developing technology - crafting intricate beadwork and transporting it into the immersive landscapes of augmented reality. The result is work that serves as a testament to the fluidity of gender and identity, the resilience of tradition, and the endless possibilities that arise when innovation and culture converge.

Mel's creativity serves as a celebration of connection—connection to the natural world, the profound ties of family, and the links we are between past and future.
