Originally from Grand Falls-Windsor (Qapskuk) and currently living in the Bay of Islands (Elmastukwek)
Alex Antle is an emerging L’nu beadwork artist located in Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). She has been learning and practicing beadwork for four years with the guidance of a community of other L’nu beaders. Alex uses traditional methods of beadwork to create contemporary pieces of artwork and wearable art. Her work often explores the relationship between tradition and modern Mi’kmaq people.
She is interested in living culture as well as the importance of the land and water. Alex has exhibited her work in galleries across Mi’kma’ki and frequently shares her skill through beading workshops.
