Jessica Gabriel is a queer mixed media multidisciplinary artist from the Sunshine Coast BC, currently working as a life model and puppeteer on the unceded, stolen and occupied traditional territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Watuth, and Squamish Nations aka Vancouver, Canada.
Jessica has a painting degree, a clown diploma, a permaculture design certificate, and since 2003 is co-artistic director, creator with Mind of a Snail.
Jessica is a founding member of the ASSEMBLY: an intersectional feminist collective of self-identified clowns; and she also performs experimental music/found sounds under the name “tay_ploops” (pronounced tape loops).
Jessica has a strong affinity to the natural whirl’d & can be found crawling the ground with many feelers, collecting and layering debris onto her homemade shell.. . .
