Featuring Original Artwork
Throughout the site we've featured original artwork from visual artist Anna Jane McIntyre: an artist with a playful practice that combines storytelling, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, performance and microactivism. Her work investigates how people perceive, create and maintain their notions of self through behaviour and visual cues, and is an ever-shifting visual mashup of British, Trinidadian and Canadian cultural traditions. Her work has been presented in Canada, the United States, England, Europe, Brazil, South Africa and the Caribbean.
