About the Ebook
Sandra Hawkins is a multimedia visual artist in painting, photography/video, installation and performance art. Her work has received critical acclaim in Canada and internationally in major exhibitions, media festivals, publications, collections and artist residencies. The broad focus of her most recent international creative research residency, Arctic Circle 2019 Arts & Sciences Expedition, Svalbard Norway, is global warming impacts on rising ocean levels and implications for coastal habitats. Ms. Hawkins’ art practice is inspired by her life-long concerns for the human-environmental ecology in the Canadian central Arctic where she has lived and worked and now by the entire Arctic Circle, and by her love of sailing/kayaking on Lac Deschenes Ottawa River. Ms. Hawkins holds the Bachelor of Fine Arts University of Ottawa; Masters in Environmental Studies York University, Bachelor of Arts - Sociology & Architecture, and post-graduate sociology of history and culture Carleton University.
