"As an interior designer, I'm always on the hunt for unique pieces that breathe life into spaces. Artterra's curated collection never disappoints. Each piece is a conversation starter, and their commitment to originality is unmatched. A designer's dream destination." — Amelia L.

Transforming Frog Child is a clan hat with a young frog sitting on top. The piece represents raising our boys into respectful young men. The hat has two small painted designs on the hat, front and back, known as salmon trout heads – in this case, the heads represent the boy’s caregiver watching over him. Barely noticeable, from behind the frog, the caregiver is watching his back for him, so the boy could continue looking forward without worry. I wanted to show the never-ending work caregivers put into their children. 

The chief is young, fore he has only earned one ermine for the top of his hat, but what an honour it was to receive such a gift. His eyes are of copper, to show that he only wants wealth for his people.

"This piece is very meaningful to me as it was my project for the YVR Art Foundation scholarship in 2017, and was displayed throughout the airport in 2018. I was mentored by both Ken McNeil and Stan Bevan, but Ken was mainly the one teaching me. I learn a lot from this piece. How to carve the body of a frog, the face of the frog, and how to hollow out awkward areas. I also picked up some tricks on craving with red cedar."

THE ARTIST'S STORY

Jamie Nole

Jamie Nole (her/she) is a neurodivergent indigenous artist from the Nisga’a and Tahltan nation of Northwest Coast BC. She is currently trying to master the art of balancing motherhood and professional artist. Jamie loves using her ancestors’ artform in modern storytelling to share life experiences that resonate with her or inspired her deeply.
In the beginning Jamie’s main creative work were of environmental awareness, grief, depression, and breaking out of anxiety attacks. When Jamie became a mother, she then started to add artwork about parenthood; pregnancy as a young single mom, and watching her child learn and grow. Years later Jamie is a mother to more kids, toddler twins being the youngest. Jamie’s kids have taught her about the wide spectrum of neurodivergence that she wasn’t fully aware of before. She now wants to help spread awareness and acceptance of neurodivergence.
Jamie is still inspired to create work to spread environmental awareness - Lately a lot of orcas who are closely studied due to their dwindling numbers; Luna, Tahlequah and her calf.

Most of Jamie’s work has frogs due to her maternal Nisga’a heritage - From the Ganada (frog) Wilp, wilp meaning ‘house’ similar to clan for other cultures. These frog designs represent Jamie herself or her children.
