Larissa Blokhuis

Larissa‘s parents each immigrated to Canada as children, from Nederland and Jamaica. They met and married in Toronto (Treaty 13A), then moved to Calgary (Treaty 7), where Larissa was born and raised. Larissa completed her BFA (glass) at AUA (formerly ACAD). In 2009, she moved to Vancouver (illegally occupied) and began pursuing visual arts opportunities, including public art, creating interactive arts events, curation, and exhibitions. In 2019, Larissa gave herself terrifying improv classes for her birthday, and found a welcoming community to explore. She has performed a handful of times, and is now developing her writing.
