Amy Huestis BFA Hons (Concordia), MFA (UCLA)

A Huestis FINA

Amy-Claire Huestis is Ladner-based visual artist with a diverse practice in painting, drawing, experiential works, books, and performance.  In her soulful and explorative work she suspends a state of wonder in relation to nature and its mysterious and elemental forces.  Besides her own active studio practice, she participates in a number of collaborations with international and local artists.  These involve durational performance, dance, and writing.  Her current work investigates the local area of the marshland in the Fraser River delta.  She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal, and a Master of Fine Arts in Media Arts from University of California Los Angeles.  She has shown her work and performed extensively across Canada and United States.
