Danika is a multidisciplinary designer and maker whose practice focuses on fostering connection between humans and the land through a collaborative, intuitive, and organic process. Having been raised in a family of Ukrainian settlers who farm the prairies of Alberta, Danika understands the need to prioritize ancestral and embodied knowledge in design methodology as we navigate the current ecological crisis. They hold a Bachelor of Design (Industrial Design) from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and reside on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
