Alexandra ‘Axis’ Jarrett is a proud member of Canoe Lake Cree First Nation. She was raised on the reserve of Eagles Lake First Nation. She is a mother of 3 children, each of whom challenges her in different ways.  Alexandra started her sole proprietorship Axis Imagery Ltd in 2014. She attended Praxis School of Entrepreneurship and incorporated Axis Imagery in 2018. In that same year she won Enactus: Indigenous Youth Idea challenge, secured a loan with Affinity and grant funding through SIEF. Alexandra completed the Aboriginal BEST Program for female Indigenous Entrepreneurs by NWAC and the CCAB, also the Matchstick program through WESK in Saskatoon. She has since completed a Bachelor's degree in Commerce with a major in Marketing.

Axis is an artist who defies categorization, embracing a unique spoken word style that captivates audiences with its rhythmic delivery, thought-provoking themes, and non-conforming spirit. From a young age, Axis immersed herself in creative writing and explored various poetry styles, honing her craft and forging her path. With an unwavering commitment to addressing deeper societal issues and taboos, Axis strives to use her body of work as a catalyst for compassion and understanding, aiming to inspire positive change in both ourselves and the world we inhabit.
