Bio

Queen² is Julie Whitenect (she/her) and Jericho Knopp (she/her), two artists, neighbours, and friends. The collective blends Julie’s visual art with Jericho’s prose to create interactive art experiences.

Julie is a printmaker and mixed-media artist. Her work explores the relationship between natural and constructed environments. She explores industrial themes and resolving curiosity by examining what is left and what will be. She’s received grants from Canada Council and artsnb, and her work has been exhibited nationwide.

Jericho is a journalist and writer, whose creative work explores narratives surrounding beauty, memory, and mental illness. Her practice is primarily non-fiction based, but she also dabbles in poetry and prose. Her work has appeared in the CBC, Created Here, Visual Arts News, and the Huffington Post.

Queen² are both of settler ancestry and live and work in Saint John, New Brunswick, which sits on the unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq People.
