Artist's Profile

Aylan Couchie is an Indigenous artist from Nipissing Reserve in North Bay, Ontario. After living in Southern California for over a decade she returned to Ontario and settled in Barrie with her three boys. In 2011, she enrolled in the Art & Design Fundamentals program at Georgian College which rekindled her love of fine art and led her on a path to pursue her BFA.

She’s been the recipient of several awards and recently was nominated for the 2015 “Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award” through the International Sculpture Center.
