Myleka Bevans

Myleka Bevans was born in Lethbridge Alberta Canada and has spent the majority of her life between Utah and California. Myleka was passionate about art from a young age using whatever was at hand to create. In 2016, she lost her premature daughter Bridget at five days old. This experience informs much of Myleka’s most recent work. Her work examines grief, her own and others, and its effects on individuals and communities. Myleka works in many mediums but views herself primarily as an installation artist.
