Peatr Thomas spent his childhood on both his mother and father's reservations; Cross Lake and Bloodvein Manitoba. Growing up practicing indigenous tradition and culture, it was his introduction to painting from an indigenous perspective from a young age. Being a direct product from the residential schools his parents attended, it was not always easy. Peatr has had his shirt designs across Canada in chain stores, has done multiple video productions for organizations, curated art exhibits and conducted many art related programs for schools, community centres, and youth camps. Some of these have been with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, including their exhibit 'Boarder X' with taking part in the floor Mural, ramp building/painting inside the gallery, and live painting on shoes for guests. Along the way, he shares his traumatic experiences and how he has coped with them, and in turn truly living his dream everyday, with hopes that it will inspire troubled youth to keep doing what they love.
