Grant Berg is a Grande Prairie based Métis artist with a strong focus on sculpture. As a child Grant was very close to his Cree grandmother, Grant would help her create crafts to sell at the farmers market to supplement her income. A favorite was taking pieces of driftwood and creating a landscape piece by attaching a tree and animal to create a scene.

I did not choose to be an artist, and like so many others my life was interrupted by children, family issues and now even grandchildren. Like so many others, I am never happy with my choice, my art, my sense of achievement.
The land has become my primary form of expression and explored both through an active studio practice and plein air practice.
Born inEdmonton, 1949. Brought up in Alberta and Ontario.
