Robyn McLeod was born in Yellowknife, NT. She is Dene and Metis and a member of the Deh Gah Gotie First Nations in the Deh Cho Region(Fort Providence,NT).

Her work is compiled of many different mediums such as textiles, beading, quill work, moose hair tufting, jewellery making, sculpting, carving, photography, film, and audio.

She uses the inspiration that comes from family, culture and environmentally sustainability that comes from the resourcefulness of living and working in the Northern Territories.  

Quote: “I grew up living in Fort Providence.  I learned to sew from Culture class in school in Fort Providence.  They had a little trailer next to the school dedicated to our traditions and culture. As kids we would be so happy to have a whole afternoon knowing we were going to be in culture class. Elders Margaret Vandell and the late Anastasia Nadli taught me how to sew and learn to live in a good way in that program.   We made quilts, mittens, sewed uppers and made purses.  I leaned how to flat bead, loom bead and embroider.  As I grew older they taught me to make slippers and made my first pair when I was 19 years old.  I am forever grateful for that time in my life to learn such things.”
