“As an artist, i practice in a variety of different mediums and subjects. If you come and see my exhibition, you’ll see how many different subjects i study in art and how you can’t simply connect my pieces together fluidly like other artists may be able to. I am constantly trying different things and experimenting with my artistic process. I have only been practicing art seriously for the last 5 or so years, so I’m still trying to find a technique or a practice that clicks with me. In my journey of finding that, it reflects in my artwork when you look and see that one painting and one drawing seem to sit on entirely different sides of an artistic spectrum.”

Shay Paul

Shay Paul is a contemporary artist and graphic designer living in Tk’emlups te Secwepemc unceded territory. She is a 20-year-old, self-taught artist and although she has always enjoyed drawing, she has only been practicing art seriously for the last 6 years. Her art style and content is varied as she practices in many different mediums, but her favoured art style is drawing with ink. She has put on two independent, self-organized exhibitions and is the project director of the Indigenous Resurgence Project.

When she’s not creating art, she is volunteering her time in various circles to better indigenous livelihoods. Her studies and her volunteer work have taken her all over the country, from facilitating conferences in some of the biggest cities, to working face to face with rural indigenous communities in the north. No matter what she finds herself doing, art is always a part of her life and is one of her most cherished passions.
