I'm Sandra Hawkins, a multimedia artist based in Ottawa Canada working in painting, photography and installation art. I believe my art contributes to climate change discussions, individually and across organizational structures. Ocean levels are rising due to melting arctic ice impacting global coastline habitations. As an artist, I want my art to challenge socio-political perceptions. At the same time, my art evokes intimate resonance around uncertainty, loss, memory and identity. My art is shown and in collections across Canada and internationally. I'm grateful for funding assistance from Ontario Arts Council and private fundraisers such as my Kickstarter for the Arctic Circle Expedition, Arts & Sciences Residency 2019.
