Tripti Prasad (she/her) is a first generation, queer, differently-abled, Canadian-Indian woman who is wending her way through her curiosities. She earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design in 2016 from the University of Manitoba, and works as an Interior Designer on Treaty 1 Territory. Over the course of 2021-22, she completed a poetry workshop with Di Brandt through McNally Robinson, and illustration courses through Emily Carr University. She is self-taught in book binding, digital and film photography, and hand lettering.
She is a professional, educated individual trained in Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCAD, and Revit, with 4 years of experience in the design and construction industry, along with 15 years of customer service, retail and teaching work experience.
Tripti’s creative work thus far has focused on expressing the joyous / cataclysmic / vibrant / irrepressible spectrum of emotion she experiences, and how her neurodivergent, chronic-pain addled brain colours the world around her. When she isn’t creating, she supports young folks as a Girl Guide leader, patiently practices yoga, hungrily consumes fantasy literature, and painstakingly attempts to re-learn her first language, Hindi. Tripti enjoys diverting public expectations of adulthood and happily co-owns her home with her partner and two soul-friends.
Tripti has had the privilege of representing Manitoba and Canada as a member of the Girl Guides of Canada in Ontario, Alberta, Ireland and India.
