Is an artist, designer, educator and curator who works in her local community of Edmonton and internationally to initiate and produce cultural projects. Her print and graphic design installations are community based and participatory in nature and examine social and political ideas of contemporary life. As interventions, her works question and negotiate points of intersection between power, gender, role, the personal and the public, art and design, the handmade and the mass-produced.
Bunnell takes inspiration from popular sources and common objects combining visual and textural referents that include fairy tales, childhood rhymes, graffiti, labels and packaging, beauty and laundry products, domestic utensils, needlework and textiles. Her works continue to explore an ongoing interest in the relationship between the political body and the personal body. Bunnell was born in Winnipeg, Canada. Specializing in hand-printed political posters, she graduated with an MFA from the University of Alberta in 1996.
Her graphic design and printwork has received national and international recognition, winning 1st prize in the 3rd International Biennial of Posters in Mexico, bronze medal in the18th Biennial of Graphic Design, Brno, Czech Republic and 1st prize in the 4th International Biennial of Print, Seoul, Korea.
