Carol Guppy- Lead Artist – Video Arts/Cultural Teachings

Carol Guppy has numerous years of experience as a photographer. For the past forty years it was a practice to have her camera at her side at all times. Her favorite subject is people and occasionally animals and scenes. Video art was a natural succession of this interest. She has worked on various projects using video to assist in teaching, documenting historical events, recording conditions or showing locations.

She offers insight and a unique perspective in her work that she attributes to her aboriginal roots. She spent her early years in Temagami and North Bay. She lived in Kenora for 34 years, where she was married and raised two sons. She returned to North Bay 5 years ago and is currently living on Nipissing First Nation.

A previous career in design drafting and construction projects has refined her managerial skills and that has proven to be a great asset. She holds numerous certificates in Supervisory Studies, and Small Business Management. She has also attended and participated in numerous workshops and conventions in regards to Aboriginal Healing and Wellness as well as Language (Ojibwe) Studies.  Carol currently works with the OPP as an Elder and Cultural Teacher.
