Vivian Smith is a 4th year AUArts student living in Mohkinstsis (Calgary). She is a multi-media artist majoring in drawing and minoring in ceramics with a background in engineering.

She explores these concepts starting with the body and utilizing traditional materials such as paint, fibre, and ceramics.

With Transitions, she invites the viewer to contemplate the massive changes that are experienced over a lifetime, the sense of aging, and the accumulation of knowledge and insight.Vivian is the recipient of the 2022 Emerging Artist ASA scholarship and serves a dual role as Treasurer and Secretary on the Board of Directors at the artist-run centre The Bows.
