What does it mean to you to be an artist working in Edmonton?
Edmonton has been home for the last 8 years as my partner and I raise our little family. The initiatives of my family have been very important to my studio life and I feel that I have been very well-supported by our art community in good times and bad. I have really grown to love living and working as an artist here in Edmonton. It has afforded me the opportunity to travel and share work beyond our city, in turn creating ties back to this little gem. As we struggle through the pandemic and the weight of the world feeling so heavy, our art community has proven to be resilient and adaptable as we re-invent ways of coming together, showing support and care towards one another.
