Malicious Sheep is a disabled, non-binary, queer, multidisciplinary artist, photographer and vocalist from rural Simcoe County, ON, Canada. They are self-taught in many mediums including, but not limited to drawing, painting, sculpture, fibre, mixed media, performance, assemblage of found objects, digital and time-based art. Malicious Sheep has developed motor and mobility issues in recent years and had transitioned primarily to photography, digital and vocals as these are the most accessible mediums they can use at this time. The artist's mobility issues necessitates the repeated examination and photographic documentation of wildlife within a half-acre property over time. Themes of study include; growth and decay, isolation, worth, as well as patterns and cycles in nature relevant to biomimetics. Malicious Sheep is descendant from craftspersons, clockmakers, ship builders, soldiers and scientists. Malicious Sheep's focus centres around intersectionality, specifically; the intersections between STEM, the arts and equity experience and how these components inform policy.
