Carollyne Yardley

Carollyne Yardley is an interdisciplinary artist-researcher of Ukrainian-Canadian settler and English-Scottish heritage based on the traditional, ancestral and unceded Coast Salish territory of the Lekwungen and Xwsepsum Nations (lək̓ʷəŋən speaking peoples). She holds an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and a BA in Art History from the University of Victoria.

Most recently, her art research has been published in Ecocene: Cappadocia Journal of Environmental Humanities and becoming-Feral, a print and digital publication creatively exploring the relations between humans/other-animals.
