ANDIE NICOLE PALYNCHUK

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Andie is an interdisciplinary artist who pours her heart and soul into her creative endeavours. She tells stories through creating, curating, and advocating art. Through painting, sculpture, installation, design, performance, and ritual theatre she uses these stories to engage audiences to share experiences with her that they may not have necessarily known existed or even wanted.

Andie does not put herself in a box but rather is striving and learning and making new types of work every day. The interconnection of all beings and the discovery of materials excite her. Through artistic creation she actively cultivates self-discovery, self-esteem, and self-acceptance each and every day.

She believes that creativety is not a rare gift that only some special few are born with, but rather an integral part of everyone’s human experience. All of us can express our creative impulses to enrich our lives and tell our own unique stories. She strives to make art accessible for all.

Andie is a co-founding member of BAM [Bridges Art Movement] and is the Art Healer and Artist in Residence at SAI [Saskatchewan Alternative Initiatives]
