Haley Bassett is a Métis and Austrian-Russian visual artist from Dawson Creek BC. She holds a BFA of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, majoring in Visual Art, with a minor in Social Practice and Community Engagement. Much of her work celebrates the culture and landscape of the Peace Region in northeastern BC. She hopes to make a positive impact on northern communities by representing them in her work.

Bassett is primarily a painter, however, her practice delves into sculpture, installation and social practice as well. Her work explores how time, place, family histories and personal traumas converge as formational aspects of the self.
