Lives and works in Vancouver, BC

Amelia Earhart (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice combines digital and hand-drawn illustrations with straight-ahead animations. Amelia’s work usually revolves around vulnerable depictions of past and present traumas. Attempting to address her split identity as a Half Filipina artist, Amelia considers her writing and illustrations as tool to navigate difficult personal memories. As a primarily machine-free tattooer, she has had the privilege and honor to place works directly on the skin, experiencing the pain and healing of a tattoo is cathartic for both her as the artist and for the clients she's met. Amelia continues her practice as a hand-poke artist with the artist collective Soft Hands Studio.
