Julie Andreyev is a Vancouver based artist-activist, researcher and educator. Her artwork has been shown locally, nationally and internationally, and she has published essays in academic journals, books, catalogues and magazines. Andreyev recently completed her PhD at Simon Fraser University. Her dissertation, Biophilic Ethics and Creativity with More-Than-Human Beings, is an interdisciplinary investigation into an expansion of ethics for all lifeforms, examined through interspecies creativity in art processes.
She enjoys walking with her canine collaborators, Tom and Sugi, paying attention to the liveliness of the local animals, trees and plants, and Earth forces. She is currently working on creative co-productions with birds, including the crow family whose territory includes her home (Bird Park), and investigating the creation of immersive media depicting experiences within old-growth forest ecologies (Wild Empathy).
