She was born and raised in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada and is a member of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. Half Moon Woman, is self-taught in the art form but was highly inspired by the work of Angelique Merasty of Flin Flon, Manitoba. Pat's work can be found in museums, galleries, and private collections around the world.
A birch bark biting is a unique piece of Indigenous artwork. They are made from biting an image, using only the teeth, into a thin, single layer of birch bark harvested from the birch tree. Then, by carefully folding the bark, the pattern imagined is pressed into the birch bark. Because each piece must be created individually, birch bark bitings are like people; no two are exactly alike!
