Artist Bio

Mikaela Gardner (she/her) is an art educator and artist based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. She is drawn to micro-landscapes in disturbed urban environments; imitating textures and exaggerating forms to create otherworldly plants and landscapes. Her drawings, photographs and short films attempt to capture the unknown, enigmatic and mystical expressions of nature. Mikaela’s practice is conceptually motivated by ideas of anti-consumerism and fostering admiration, respect, and reciprocity with the-more-than-human world.
