Bio

peekAn advocate for art in the public realm, Winton creates performative/sculptural installations to provoke civic engagement on socio-political issues. Her recurrent experience as a prop builder in the Film & Television industry has influenced her atypical approach to material usage. Having recently attained an MFA from NSCAD University, she continues to investigate the role of the citizen artist in the public spheres we occupy following Joseph Beuys’ theory of the importance of sculpture’s relationship to the social. Her studio is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia though her projects often carry her off on intrepid adventures into the streets and woodlands.
