Hello!  I'm Larissa Blokhuis, a fine art sculptor working in glass, ceramics, wool, and other materials.  I have been working as an artist in Western Canada since 2009.  The theme of my current work is "Imaginary Future Evolution."  I have been moving towards projects that include public engagement, and that is where you come in.  You will be a first point of contact, and you will be able to influence what I produce.  I like to practice gratitude, and you will be part of that.  Thank you! 


Artist Biography: 

Larissa was born in the mid 80s on the edge of the prairies in Canada. In 2008 she completed her BFA with a major in glass at the Alberta College of Art and Design. In 2009, Larissa moved to the coast temporarily to take a job as a glassblower on Granville Island. After establishing a presence on Granville Island, Larissa began pursuing opportunities throughout Western Canada. She has been Assistant Teacher at Red Deer College and Terminal City Glass Co-op. Larissa has exhibited extensively in Alberta and BC, and divides her time between Calgary, AB, and Vancouver, BC.

In 2016, she completed her first public art piece, "Love Your Neighbour, Love Your Ocean," located at 2233 West 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC. In 2017, she joined the board of Curiosity Collider as Exhibitions Director. Curiosity Collider is a non-profit arts organisation that creates events which highlight the many connections between art and science.

Larissa is interested in a diverse range of topics, including nature, politics, psychology, and history. She loves to travel and take photographs. New experiences and sights feed her creativity. Larissa is inspired by the evolutionary history of plants, and the repetition of life cycles. Her current focus on using glass and mixed media by incorporating ceramic, steel, wool, polymer, and wood as needed has allowed her to develop a distinctive style.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I will be able to invest in fabrication / studio time, material costs, and larger projects.  I will also be able to invest in tools and better equipment.  I will be able to drop a few freelance gigs and spend more time communicating with my lovely patrons.
