Kendra Yee | @kendrayee

Kendra Yee's practice consists of mixed-media paintings, ceramic sculptures and narrative based installations. The assembled landscapes throughout her work serve as artifacts to episodic memories, acting as archives to family histories that have survived through storytelling.

Jason Zante | @jasonizer_art

I am a graphic design major in my final thesis year at OCAD University. The type of design work I create varies depending on the project I am working on. I specialize in three main areas which are in illustration, photography, and graphic design. Most often, the work I produce merges the three disciplines to produce a nexus of multimedia art and design.
