My name is Jessika Fancy, a queer artist, a magic maker, working class, white, chronically ill femme. I am eternally devoted to flowers and animals. My immediate ancestry that I am aware of is Acadian, Ukrainian, Polish, and French Québécois.
I was born in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal Québec; the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg (Algonquin) and possibly other tribes.
I am a full-time artist, poet and magic maker; who does not have access to wealth of any kind outside of the income I generate with my various projects. I think that it is an important piece of the puzzle, as too often people make it look so easy and glamorous to be their own boss without disclosing their access to financial/generational wealth.
