Their bio states:
"Born in Temagami, Ontario, Chee Chee was a prominent member of the second generation of Woodland Indian painters. He painted in a style influenced by modern abstraction. While most of the young Woodland Indian artists were content to follow the Style of the movements founder Norval Morisseau. Chee Chee pursued a more economical graphic style, a reduction of line and image more in keeping with the mainstream of international modern art. At the age of thirty-two and at the height of a new found success as an artist and printmaker, Chee Chee died tragically by committing suicide."
