Sara-Jeanne Bourget’s drawing and printmaking practice stems from the creation of handmade and naturally sourced charcoal. Her deep-seated awareness of materials is rooted in the intimate knowledge of their provenance, fabrication, and uses. She inquires how the act of mining materials in/site/fully can be reflected in various practices, including non-human interactions.
She has exhibited her work and participated in residency programs in Finland, Quebec, and The United States. She has twice received grants from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in support of her work and pursuit of her studies. In 2020, she co-founded Patio Press, a hybrid-printmaking residency with Mark Johnsen.
She holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University (2015) and an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2019). She is currently a sessional faculty member in the Audain Faculty of Art at Emily Carr University.
