I am...
A Canadian born Jamaican, Anastasia E White studied fine art at Langara College before attending the University of British Columbia where she received a BFA in visual art. While her studies focused on studio practice and contemporary visual art she is fascinated by language and modes of communication, in particular the fluid evolution and deaths of language and dialects. A knitter since childhood, Anastasia allows her passion for yarn, language, and art theory to inform her art.

Anastasia E White lives in Vancouver, BC where she works as an Associate Director at Diane Farris Gallery.
About my artwork
Working in various mediums, Anastasia E White’s work explores her family history. Coming from a mixed race family she is fascinated by the diversity of experiences encountered as her family has spread across North America, Europe and the West Indies. Through exploring and sharing family stories Anastasia has come to better understand not only her families’ histories but her own individual identity. By documenting stories through textiles, paint, collage, photography, and text she aims to build a better understanding of the dynamics of mixed race families and cultures, hopefully inspiring the viewer to examine the diversity of their own heritage.

Spooky Textiles

Every Halloween I have the best of intentions to get a costume together and head out on the town, and every Halloween I end up staying in. Living in an apartment there aren’t even trick or treaters to give candy to. This year I have a good excuse, I will, yet again, be spending the weekend working on my Dad’s place. So, instead of a costume and party how about a Halloween post? Read…
