Miriam Berndt

Land-Based Art+Design

Miriam is a landscape designer and mixed-media visual artist, living in cə̓snaʔəm (so-called Marpole, Vancouver BC). She is the daughter of Theresa from Kahkewistahaw First Nation, Jim of Irish ancestry, and the step-daughter of Chris from the Six Nations of the Grand River.

In August 2022, Miriam launched her practice “Land-Based Art+Design”. This practice combines both her passions, art and landscape architecture. Her design approach is rooted in the power of the land; the power to hold the history of culture and ecology from time immemorial to the present. She seeks to uncover these land-based stories to inform design expressions and innovations that confront the colonial paradigm and promote a regenerative future. Her visual art explores themes of generational healing, hybrid identity, and land-based epistemologies.
