Born in Jamestown, NY, Luanne Redeye grew up on the Allegany Indian Reservation in Western New York. It is from here where she draws inspiration incorporating community, family, and culture into her artwork, which gives her pieces a strong personal and emotional component. Whether her art touches on the native experience, identity, or resiliency, Luanne’s work is always created through a native lens sharing her experiences, knowledge, and perspective of navigating a modern world as a native woman.
An enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Hawk Clan, Luanne received her MFA in Painting and Drawing at the University of New Mexico. She has exhibited in exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the US and abroad, including Kent State University, the Rainmaker Gallery in Bristol, UK and the MEAM in Barcelona, Spain. She has been featured in First American Art Magazine and has also been a participant of various residencies including the Truth and Reconciliation Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute and the Constance Saltonstall Residency in Ithaca, NY.
Luanne currently lives and works in Binghamton, New York.
