Teresa Vander Meer-Chasse

2018 Shakaat Artist-in-Residence
Teresa Vander Meer-Chassé (b. 1992) is a proud member of the White River First Nation of Beaver Creek, Yukon. Her beadwork is inspired by the strong women and the support of the caring men in her life. Teresa defines herself as an Upper Tanana visual artist and garbage beautifier. Her style is unique and often draws upon her cultural past in a contemporary way.
