Born gifted to an artist mother whose support continues to be endless, and nurtured by the voluminous mountains of the Kootenay valley, Bubzee is a self-taught artist who transforms experience and vision through a vast variety of mediums.
Guided by dreams, creatures, the creative, inspired by Nature and the Spirit world,
Bubzee takes pieces of our fractured world and returns us to our origins.
A lifelong self employed artist who began exploring art at a very young age and has never strayed far from her path even through the struggles and pressures of the material world.
Her artistic ability holds very little limitations, and spans across two decades, leaving Bubzee and her art on growing demand across the country.
She casts light upon shadow using whichever means necessary, or whatever materials are close at hand, having delved into many different realms giving her titles such as, illustrator, painter, tattoo artist, street artist, animator, seamstress and wild crafter.
Working with ink, paint, stain, rust, dried flowers, fabric, antique relics, aged wood, canvas, seed and soil.
Eluding convention, while living closely with the land, she has left no boundary unchallenged.
Thriving inside a hive of health, an independent enchantress who does the hard work.
From hauling water, splitting wood, to courting the plants and charming the animals.
Bubzee brews potions transforming the healing power’s of the woods into salves and tinctures, growing her own food and tobacco, being a living example, of the change she wishes to sea in the world around her.
Fuel’d by instinct her ability to listen to the unseen has always kept her close to the spirits and the silent ones, giving voice to the forgotten and abandoned.
Bubzee has made herself a vessel through which light pours over the decaying beauty and lonely aspects of the world, guiding them from death into life, while exalting the moments of the in-between in layers of paint and streams of emotion.
There is a feeling and presence to her work that connects us all deeply.
Unfurling spells of stillness, unveiling truths we have kept hidden from ourselves, while laying all secrets to rest. Bubzee gently encourages our own awakening to possibility and growth giving us the inspiration and ability to sea the strength hidden within that is monumental to our healing.
Bubzee’s latest project involves live art/ animation working alongside the musical workings of Uschi Tala, which will be showcased in Spring 2017 and followed up by a cross Canada tour.
