Mikayla Barney makes art which reflects her viewpoint on life; she is strange and unusual but the world around her is just the same. Everyday objects and environments with emotive or kitschy connotations are the main subjects of her work. She constantly switches between drawing, sculpting, photography and performance. She uses craft materials and takes a handmade, personal approach when making to allow hints of her own humor to seep into everything she does.
She is currently working and living in Toronto, Ontario.
