She holds a BFA (UQÀM, 2020) and a certificate in ecology (UQÀM, 2022). In her practice, Andy Maple focuses on the relationship between human beings and the living world. She combines a craft and scientific approach in her work with ceramics, textiles and images, but also through gardening, darning and knowledge sharing. With artist Alex Pouliot, she is co-founder of the publishing house Pièce jointe, whose mission is to deploy artistic methodologies outside the academic context, with the aim of making art accessible to a wider public.
