Shelby Edwards

Multidisciplinary Artist

Shelby is a Toronto based Maker and Designer. She received her Bachelor of Arts Honours in Studio Art from the University of Guelph, and completed certificate programs in Data Visualization and Infographics at George Brown College and UX Design at Brainstation. Shelby’s most recent work has been focused on sustainability, food sovereignty, and community engagement.

She is interested in finding humour in human behaviour, exploring mundane histories and objects, making collections through connections, visualising stories and making projects and ideas approachable. Her practice is mainly informed by accident.
