About Girl Called Alaska

two moons

Celestial costumiers, Writings, Ink & Watercolour Musings of a couple of moons living gratefully on stolen land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən peoples of the Songhees nation. 

Girl Called Alaska is the kaleidoscopic curation of Nell & Sahmrai; two kindred souls in friendship’s form who want to share their love of ‘All The Things’ with each and every one of you. Girl Called Alaska is a portal to which you can access multimediums & multidimensions. We’re here for a good time & a long time. We hope you are too! 

Girl Called Alaska is expanding into the abyss & beyond. We invite you to come along--dip your toes in the mystical waters, dissolve into the atmosphere like the beams of stardust you are. Adorn yourself in Ink & Peace Beads, decorate your halls with memories both lived & imagined. This is a place where past, present and future merge. Drink it up. Spread it around. Love is the answer. Where you are is a reflection of where you are going.  Allow us to hold the mirror so that you may examine yourself softly and shine, shine on. 


About Artist

Nell Nancy Ayotte is an artist and writer living on the stolen land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən peoples of the Songhees nation. Inspired by maximalist décor, ancestral ties, art of yesteryear and the etherial, Nell’s work strives to reflect the nature of community, fluidity, mysticism and the self. 

The open faces invite you to dissolve into the artwork's world and imagine yourself gazing back at you.
