Twyla Exner is a Canadian artist inspired by the wonders of nature and the idea of electronic technologies gone awry. She uses the materials and imagery of discarded electronic technologies to create whimsical and worrisome sculptures and drawings that propose hybrids of technological structures and living organisms.
Twyla holds a BFA in sculpture from the University of Regina (Regina, SK) and a MFA in studio arts from Concordia University (Montreal, QC). Twyla is passionate about sharing in the creative process and has designed exhibitions and facilitated lectures, workshops, lesson plans and interactive art making experiences for schools, community centers, post-secondary institutions, galleries and festivals across Canada.
From Treaty 4 Territory of the Saskatchewan prairies, Twyla now lives and plays in the forest of north central British Columbia on the traditional, unceeded territory of the Lheidli T'enneh with her cat Tater and partner Griffith Aaron Baker.
