Britta Marakatt-Labba was born in 1951 and grew up in a family of reindeer herders in Saarivuoma Sami village. She began her career as an artist in 1979 after completing her studies at the School of Art and Design in Gothenburg. Early on, she got involved together with other newly trained Sami artists in building and forming a Sami artists' organization.

Today, Britta lives and works in Övre Soppero and has been an active artist for over 30 years. She had her big international breakthrough in 2017, when her 24-meter-long embroidery "The History" was shown at the contemporary exhibition Documenta 14. The work was created between 2003-2007 and depicts Sami history and mythology in snapshots. Today, the embroidery hangs permanently in the University of Tromsø.

For her art, she has received both awards and cultural prizes. Among other things, Illi's quorum (2017), the Stig Dagerman prize (2019) and the Prins Eugen medal (2020).
In 2022 she participated in the Venice Biennale.

Britta's pictures are miniature worlds. They contain scenes from everyday life, political reflections and stories about Sami culture and history. The magnificent nature and the white snow of the sparkling winter landscape are ever present.
