Wanda’s Arts Awards 2020: Dey (3rd place winner)

About Dey

Dey has been a potter and painter for 15 years. She is a graduate of George Brown college and has lived at Homes First’s Meegwetch place
for many years.

Dey continues to work on her art by taking classes where possible, and has taught at drop-ins and shelters in the city. She has sold her art in neighbourhoods and craft fairs, and has been nominated for the Wanda’s Arts Awards in previous years.

To her, art is the stuff dreams are made of. Painting is a way of healing the past.

“I feel that art is a bridge between God and man.”
