About

virginia-crotch-2

Virginia Mitford is an emerging Yukon artist who divides her time between the far edges of the country. Her childhood spent on a remote trapline in the Yukon with her family and dog-team has had a huge influence on her art practice. Working with a variety of media, namely printmaking, photography and drawing, she examines her own personal history within broader concepts of feminism, nostalgia and change. After graduating from Memorial University with a BFA in Visual Arts, Virginia has taken part in artist residencies in Montreal and across Newfoundland. She will be the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture artist in residence this coming March.
