Marissa Bialowas (she/her) grew up daydreaming and exploring on traditional Treaty 7 Territory. Her heart has established a home in several places since, but she could always find a sense of comfort in early morning cups of coffee, warm light, the travel-sized watercolour set in her backpack, and most of all, the deep-rooted soul ties with friends who have carried her on clouds of effortless laughter, radical love, and unconditional support.
Artist Inspiration : “I have heard a lot of folks say they miss hugging those they care about — more simply, they miss physical touch. In a time of social distancing, we are challenged to embrace the ones we love with our words and distant actions. I like to think that we are redefining what it means to truly be “”connected,”” even from afar. I hope that we will walk away from this a little more connected to the people that make our hearts sing and deepen the crow’s feet at our hopeful eyes. But most of all, I hope that we will take the time to tune in and connect to realities beyond our own, and prepare to fight the good fight that puts love at the forefront.”
