Clemence Wescoupe, of Saulteaux background, was born in 1951 on the Long Plain Reserve in Manitoba. His native name is "Oo-za-biness" which means "Brown Partridge". Wescoupe's work began following the early Woodland and Prairie Aboriginal tradition of such artists as Daphne Odjig and Jackson Beardy and in 1976 started his own graceful, flowing lines and stylized forms, emerging somewhat at the same time Benjamen Chee Chee's work was introduced into the Winnipeg area. Clemence emerged in the mid-seventies when Robert Checkwitch of Great Grasslands Graphics first saw his work and began publishing Wescoupe's silkscreen prints. The elegant image, Rainbirds, which came out in 1977 was one of the most popular and successful Woodland Aboriginal prints ever created.
