Randie Feil
Mezzotint Printmaker and Artist

Randie Feil was born in Kamloops and has lived and worked in Victoria, British Columbia, since 1985.  She is fascinated by how the world may be perceived and interpreted in myriad ways, simultaneously, and how language, culture, history, and myth offer various means by which to examine those perceptions.  She is especially drawn to the natural world for inspiration and a sense of awe.
