Doris Muise

Doris Muise is from the Mi'kmaq nation in Newfoundland. Doris grew up with her nose in books or art materials in her hands. That is how she survived being the sixth of twelve children in a sprawling, rambunctious family in rural Newfoundland. She is the proud descendant of Mi'kmaq, French, and Scottish ancestors.

She holds a Master of Arts in Art Education from NSCAD University and a Creative Writing Certificate from UT. She has exhibited her art work professionally and her writing has appeared in the Globe and Mail, Toronto. A seasoned teacher, Doris has taught art to people of all ages across Canada. She now lives in a rustic cedar home on traditional Nuxalk territory in Bella Coola, BC.

When she is not making art or writing, Doris teaches the wonderful children at Acwsalcta School. In her spare time, she wanders off with her friends and her hefty dog Freida into the tide flats and woods of the Great Bear Rainforest.
