Kiara Havixbeck is a queer settler of mixed heritage currently residing and creating on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the the xwməθkwəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱ wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. They are a multi-media artist who isolates and oscillates between digital and tangible materials. Particularly, Kiara is fond of following curiosity to conduct material investigations through woodwork, sculpture, print making and other processes. They are most interested in exploring community narratives in relation to the construction of materials and iterate their findings within each of their works.
