Daelyn is a visual and performance artist based on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Watuth Nations (Vancouver, BC). Born in Marondera, Zimbabwe and raised between Kenya and Canada, she continues to explore in person and on paper.




I create art inspired by my life experiences and a deep love of storytelling. I'm drawn to fantasy, fable and symbology: I'm fascinated by what images call to us in the stories we share and create. I'm always exploring new mediums and methods, currently developing my tattoo practice and expanding my portfolio. 

When not painting you can usually find me making a third cup of tea (to replace it's lukewarm predecessors), listening to melancholy music, or rollerblading to the beach.
