JJ Steeves is a Nova Scotia-based illustrator, artist, and arts educator. Treasuring the mundane in order to foster intimacy between art and viewer is especially important as she explores the significance of our daily patterns. Her work is largely influenced by street art, comics and zine culture.

JJ works to bring art out of the realm of formal institutions and into a space for anyone of any background by designing and facilitating arts programs for youth and adults alike. JJ has created arts programs for NSCAD University's Extended Studies Department, the MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning, The IWK Health Centre, and Halifax Public Libraries.

Over the years JJ has worked with many clients including Conundrum Press, Gaspereau Press, Atlantic Central Credit Union, The Coast Alternative Weekly, LiisBeth ¤ Field Notes for Feminist Changemakers, and The Link - Concordia's Independent Newspaper.
