Welcome to our art family A Feather and a Stone. We are so looking forward to you being part of both our Christmas and Spring shows in Vancouver this year!
Let’s give Sheena some love everyone!
Growing up on Vancouver Island, Sheena Francis Olito has always found inspiration in the beautiful west coast rainforest. The ocean, rivers, and grand forests provide a calming and relaxing atmosphere for creative inspiration. As a First Nations artist, it is no surprise that her designs use natural elements like sterling silver, amethyst, moonstone, and turquoise.
Sheena had always known she wanted to be an entrepreneur. After high school she obtained a Business Diploma with Entrepreneurial focus and set out into the world. After meeting renowned artist Clarence Mills she rediscovered her love of making jewellery and enrolled in a Metal Jewellery Design program at the local college.
Today you can find her creating in her studio on the unceded territory of the Quw’utsun people. As she continues to expand her skills designing jewellery, you can view her evolving journey on IG @afeatherandastone
Sheena is of Southern Tutchone and Scottish descent. She belongs to the Kwanlin Dun First Nations in Whitehorse, YT. Having recently connected with her mothers biological family, she has discovered she comes from a long line of matriarchs belonging to the Wolf clan. She is eager to learn more about the culture and traditional teachings of her ancestors.
