Giselle Peters

Edmonton, AB

Artist Statement

Giselle Peters appreciates the unique perspective that children have on the world, and hopes to invoke that sense of magic in her work. She creates figurative sculptures that address the human condition from the innocent lens of childhood. Through objects such as dolls and figurines, she explore complex global issues such as war, pollution, consumerism, and propaganda. Through these objects, Giselle can approach the subject matter with a spirit of playfulness and irony.

Artist Bio

Giselle Peters was born in Saskatchewan, Canada. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics at the Alberta College of Art and Design and a Bachelor of Psychology with Distinction at Concordia University in Montreal. She worked for several years in the field of brain injury and developmental disabilities, including participating in research for the use of the creative arts in human development, before deciding to focus once again on visual arts. Giselle has participated in artist residency programs in both Canada and the United States, has exhibited her work internationally, and has received two individual project grants from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
