About the artist:

Anna Jane McIntyre is an artist whose playful practice combines storytelling, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, performance, and microactivism. Her work investigates how people perceive, create and maintain their notions of self through behavior and visual cues and is an ever-shifting visual mashup of British, Trinidadian and Canadian cultural traditions.

The mural project is a partnership between the student-led Queen’s University Advocacy Coalition, the Office of the Principal and Vice-Chancellor, and STEPS Public Art.
