Shea Proulx

Through tracing and repetition, Shea constructs autobiographical visual narratives that transcend the boundaries of individual lived experience. Her books “ABC Monstrosity” and “Alice at Naptime” were both nominated for the Best Illustrated category by the Alberta Book Publisher’s Association, and “Alberta Comics: Home,” which she co-edited and did the cover art for, won the award in 2023. As Vice-President on the board of directors for Panel One, a Calgary/Mohkinstsis based comics festival, Shea helps put the spotlight on local, original sequential artwork. Her two daughters and husband, artist Ryan Proulx, routinely make her laugh so hard she spits.
