"Jacqueline "Jackie" Traverse was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is Ojibway from the Lake St. Martin First Nation. Jackie began drawing as a child and was inspired from a field trip to the Wahsa Gallery when she was 13 years old. It wasn't until she was 32 years old that she decided to submit a portfolio of her works to the University of Manitoba where she studied Fine Arts and graduated with a diploma in May of 2009.
Jackie's achievements include two stop motion hand-drawn animation short films under the mentorship of Jessica MacCormack in partnership with Crossings Communities Art Project. (...)"
