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 and family members into her paintings, which gives her works a strong personal and emotional component.
An enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Hawk Clan, she studied at the University of New Mexico receiving her MFA in 2011. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the US and abroad, including Travois in Kansas City, MO, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, NY, 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.
After a decade living in New Mexico Luanne relocated to her home state in 2019 and is currently a Lecturer at Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York.
