ALERIE BARNHART is an independent animator and visual artist based out of Ottawa, Canada. Her interdisciplinary practice is exploratory in nature but revolves specifically around the dynamics of silence and inaction as a form of violence.
Valerie earned her BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design as a Visual Arts Major: with a studio specialty in Printmaking, Drawing, and an academic emphasis in Decolonization Politics and Non Western Art.
Her art practice made a massive shift into documentary and animation entirely by accident. Valerie taught herself how to animate during this production.
Valerie has exhibited in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary.
She lives with her husband and a motley crew of animal amongst piles of dusty books.
