An interdisciplinary artist, Nevada's work incorporates digital art and printmaking, and she is reviving her studies in creative writing to provide further context on creative projects. Formerly a fine art painter, Nevada's creative practice explored specific themes (eastern philosophy, plant medicine, reverence for nature), but now her work is largely defined by a commitment to examine issues relating to social and climate justice. An activist at heart, Nevada evolves and leverages her practice to serve as a conduit for change.
Suitably, printmaking is an art form that lends itself to activism. The bright, bold nature of the medium, combined with the ability to create multiples and collaborate with a community of printmakers, is shaping Nevada's work and enabling her to explore topics she finds relevant and meaningful. As a Métis woman, a significant component of her work aims to support the Métis community and strengthen Métis culture.
Nevada currently studies Visual Art at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC and divides her time between Vancouver and Whistler where she gratefully lives on the shared, unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation and the Lilwat7úl (Lil’wat) Nation.
Nevada (she/her) is a Cree Métis from her maternal line (descending from the historic Métis Tourond family) with Irish and Italian European ancestry. She is a citizen of the Métis Nation of British Columbia and a member of the North Fraser Valley Métis Association.
