About the ARTist: Shaya Schreiber was born in Green Bay Wisconsin and is a member of the MARTen Falls First Nation community. She was raised and currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin. At the age of 8 years old, Shaya learned her skills from a family friend and began making regalia, beadwork and Moccasins. Today, Shaya has over 16 years of practice and considers her ART to be both traditional and contemporary.
Shaya’s inspiration to become an Artist began as a child, she would use her imagination to make ideas come to life. Growing up, she didn’t get the opportunity to be surrounded by her Ojibwe culture however, as Shaya learned more about her heritage and traditional Art over time, it helped her create connections with other native Artists which gave her the opportunity to pass her knowledge down to the next generation. As a Social worker at an Elementary school, Shaya is able to teach Native American art, culture and experiences with her students.
In Shaya’s free time, she enjoys learning about foraging and new styles of Art. She has two dogs and I loves taking them to parks.
