about the artist

Sarah Jim is an emerging artist of Coast Salish, Mexican, and Russian-Jewish ancestry, and is a proud member of the W̱SÁNEĆ nation from the Tseycum village. She has received a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts from the University of Victoria and emulates her love of ethnobotany through her artwork. Tending to the land through ecosystem restoration has resulted in deep insights of the interconnectedness of the natural world and has helped empower Sarah as a W̱SÁNEĆ woman and a Coast Salish artist. Creating place-based artwork allows an alternative way to visually explore the connections between native plant food systems and coastal medicines in relation to the ecosystem and W̱SÁNEĆ culture.
