About

Jacinthe Demmert is a textile artist from the Haida Nation. She weaves natural fibers of the Pacific Northwest into vessels that interact with the environment Jacinthe was raised in Hydaburg, Alaska. She is of the Stáas’taas clan and her crests include eagle, beaver, sculpin, and frog. Jacinthe learned the art of Haida basketry from her mother, Vicki LeCornu. She learned the art of Haida form-line and woodcarving from her father, Adrian LeCornu and she has applied Haida form-line to baskets with paint and false embroidery. She explores functional forms with environmental interactions. Jacinthe’s weaving had been shown in Seattle, Santa Fe, Anchorage, Portland, Brooklyn, Victoria, Vancouver and Ketchikan. In 2017, she attended a residency at Santa Fe Art Institute. She continues to work on innovative and sustainable textiles in Shoreline, Washington.
