EMILY THIESSEN

Emily Thiessen is an artist and illustrator with a fire for creative troublemaking. She comes from Chinese-Malaysian and Mennonite roots and grew up here on beautiful Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ Territories.

Her art is often about magical places and people power.

THE WOODPILE COLLECTIVE

Since the spring of 2003, the Woodpile's collaborative artistic history has been consistent and prolific. The collective's pieces can be found both in conventional gallery settings, and as unexpected public art drops.

The process of their collaboration is free-flowing and always open to one another's re-interpretation. As they step up to the canvas they paint as one. Six hands and three minds processing one another's marks and working in the moment, the painting unfolds like a conversation between friends.
This process is rooted at the core of the Woodpile and all its creative endeavours.

Founding members Shawn O'Keefe, Blythe Hailey, and Sean McLaughlin reside in Victoria B.C. Canada.

SARAH JIM

Sarah Jim is an emerging artist of mixed ancestry and is a member of the W̱SÁNEĆ nation from the Tseycum village.

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Victoria and conducts environmental restoration on her ancestral territory. Creating place-based artwork of her homelands and waters allows her to bring awareness to the importance of native plant food systems, coastal medicines, and traditional practices in relation to the ecosystem and W̱SÁNEĆ culture.
