Earth Sky Collective is made up of two artists: Mo Thunder and Shawn Howe in T'karonto.
Mo (they/them) is Onyota’a:ka (Oneida Nation of the Thames) and french-canadian. They’re a non-binary, neuroemergent artist and visual storyteller from a small town along the St. Clair River and are currently based on One Dish One Spoon Territory /T’karonto (Toronto).
Through their multidisciplinary art practice (painting, murals, mixed media, beading,journaling, poetry and textiles), they create visual stories about their lived experiences through their mind, heart, spirit and body. Mo is inspired by intergenerational connections, kin and community, healing, all of creation, skyworld and personal + collective empowerment.
Shawn Howe (They/Them) is Anishinaabe, Irish, Scottish and French. They are a Non-Binary, queer, neurodivergent, disabled person living in Tkaronto. They come from Neyaashiinigmiing First Nation, with membership in Sipekne’katik First Nation.
Shawn draws inspiration from their culture, community, kin, queerness, and their love and relation to the land. They create art that embodies a fluid and infinite way they see the cosmos, animals, water and ancestors. They seek to create visual stories/murals where love and joy can be felt and where we can engage in deeper conversations to move beyond oneself, and think about our relations with the land and each other.
