Highlighting Alberta LGBTQIA2s+ Artists and Creators


Erin Kew

"I am a self taught artist although to be fair my father was a political cartoonist so I came by my skills somewhat naturally. I like to challenge myself with different styles and techniques so my art is often across the board. If I were to give advice to any aspiring artist it would be that art school doesn't make you an artist; that is a false equivalence. Art school may teach you more diverse and technical techniques as well as marketability but art created by an artist is a reflection of one's soul and is not something that can be taught. Technical skills can be learned anywhere and in my experience, can be picked up through life, books, colleagues, the internet etc. My second piece of advice is to only do art for yourself and your own enjoyment. The minute you stop doing it for yourself is when it loses its appeal and you will never be satisfied.

I identify as an asexual, or as many refer to it now as ACE. We are a hidden orientation fighting for representation and visibility. Despite the claims we are a minority, you can actually find us across many of the orientations in the 2SLGBTQIA+ and every race."

A lot of kids ask Coco if they're a boy or a girl, but no matter what they wear, their answer is always the same: I'm neither! Coco LaQueer is a non binary drag artist, and used to be an elementary school teacher! Coco has always loved helping kids see that the rules about what boys should do, and what girls should do, aren't true! Coco wants everyone to do what they love, and to dress however makes them feel good!
