Burwash grew up in Rossland, BC, completed her bachelor of fine arts degree at UBC Okanagan in 2009, and now lives in Nova Scotia. Over the past five years she has compiled an extensive history of solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the U.S., and abroad. She has participated in numerous artist residencies across North America, and recently completed a six-week thematic residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Widely recognized and admired for her extraordinary talent in narrative drawing, watercolour, and illustrational drawing, she is also active in video, animation, fanzines and artist book works. The Far Woods was influenced by her artist residency locations, travels in the wilderness, and stories from remote areas and rural communities.
