Leandra Brandson is an interdisciplinary artist based out of Treaty 1 Territory. She is currently pursuing her BFA Honours with a focus in ceramics at the University of Manitoba. Her work addresses concepts of body, gender, and our relationship with our social environment. She works to merge concepts of traditional construction with a modern lens, inspired by her lived experiences as a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. She is interested in the relationship between self-expression, digital media, and ceramics and hopes to further that interaction in the upcoming year as a part of her studies.
