Sarah Jim is an emerging artist from W̱SÁNEĆ. Her ancestry is mixed but her roots are in Tseycum First Nation on the Saanich Peninsula. While finishing her Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts at the University of Victoria she has been making art that consists of local flora and fauna, Coast Salish elements, cosmic imagery, dreamy landscapes, and everyday ordinary magic. The importance of nature is emulated through depicting these natural elements in such a way that obscures mundane perceptions. This art tends to subvert the way we look at nature by portraying it in a way that reality does not normally allow. Sarah’s intense interest and love for W̱SÁNEĆ territory has taken her down a path that allows her to interact with the natural environment by learning about the native plants of the area and reflecting upon those interactions visually. This acquired knowledge of the natural realm directly impacts her life and art. The art of Sarah Jim reflects optimism, altered perception, and a laid-back island lifestyle.
