Haley Parker

Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Haley Parker (b. 1996) is an emerging Canadian lens-based artist currently based in Toronto.

After attending Etobicoke School of the Arts as a Film major in secondary school, Haley went on to focus on still images in her post-secondary pursuits, graduating from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography in 2019.

Her work focuses on exploring identity and its intersections with duality, dreams, and mental health + illness. Often mixing mediums to create composited artworks, the aspect of manipulation is an essential component to her practice and realizing these themes.


Q+A

How long have you been creating art?

Since 2010.

When did you start making art, and why?

I started working on art seriously in Grade 9 upon my acceptance to Etobicoke School of the Arts. At that point, my focus was primarily short films.
