Kristin Gyrlevich Singh is a multidisciplinary community-engaged environmental artist and activist graciously living on the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Wǝlastǝkewiyik/Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), Mi’kmaq/Mi’kmaw and Peskotomuhkati. Her arts practice is dedicated to social change in the areas of environmental sustainability and gender equality. She is an emerging visual artist and poet as well as a song writer. Her aim is to foster an interconnected relationship between our waterways, our lands and our people and to inspire others to find harmony within themselves and the environment. Her belief that the message is more important than the medium has led to using all natural paints, dyes, fungi and bacteria to create biodegradable environmentally friendly art work. It is with these works that she hopes to convey that it is the ideas communicated in our art that foster change that must remain. Alongside this practice , Kristin has worked in the non-profit and public sectors as a board member, volunteer librarian, art therapy leader, gallery owner and manager. She opened Under the Tree Art Gallery in 2020 to give local artists a venue to showcase their work during the COVID-19 pandemic and to help engage the community with art and the environment.
