Heather Kai Smith is an artist, illustrator and animator from Calgary, AB. She received her B.F.A. in Drawing from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2009, and has recently been accepted to Emily Carr University for their MAA studio program. Over the past ten years Smith has actively contributed to her local arts community through artist-run centre directorial work and workshop facilitation, and has regularly exhibited her artwork locally and abroad. Using multiple mediums (ranging from animation, printmaking, projection and installation), the foundation of her work is rooted in the practice of drawing. Smith has attended residencies in Germany and New Mexico and has participated in workshops, festivals and exhibitions across Canada and the United States. Her practice is rooted in examining sincerity of self through the act of production, the culture of display and the desire to give the invisible a shape.
