Jaymie Johnson is an interdisciplinary artist for whom site-specificity, social and environmental impact, and research through observation, experimentation, and collaboration are integral to the material form her practice takes. She uses a variety of media to explore the connection between art, ecology, and community. These include printmaking, mapping, drawing, sculpture, and plant and earth materials through fibre processing and community engagement. Jaymie’s background includes studies in permaculture and sustainable agriculture both globally and locally. Since graduating with a BFA in Visual Arts from Emily Carr University in 2015, she has worked on numerous community-engaged and environmental public art projects as a member of the chART Collective and as Project Assistant with Border Free Bees. She continues to expand her fibre growing and processing knowledge with EartHand Gleaners Society as the 2018 steward of two artist resource gardens.
