Shirley Wiebe is a self-taught interdisciplinary artist based in Vancouver BC. Born and raised in a rural Saskatchewan farming community, Shirley's work is informed by a strong childhood bond with the prairie landscape. Her installation and sculptural work explores relationships between physical geography and the built environment, with a particular interest in site-specific and project-based work.
Shirley has participated in a number of international art residencies as an opportunity to initiate projects and new bodies of work with materials she discovers there. She has created site-specific installations in national public art galleries and sculpture parks throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Shirley Wiebe has been invited to collaborate with diverse communities, groups and organizations and she in turn invites them to improvise with her.
