Gwyneth Ann Bushman is a nonbinary artist, craftsman, and performer working out of Portland, Oregon.  Being infatuadted with the ways humans communicate since they were young, Gwyneth studied theater and the performing arts extensively until their graduation from highschool. In 2016, they started attending the Oregon College of Art and Craft. There their focus was in metalsmithing, but were able to recieve a cross media based education. This enabled them to learn and practice with a varitey of materials and crafts alongside each other including ceramics, fiber, and book craft. In 2019 OCAC closed and Gwyneth tranfered to the Pacific Northwest College of Art. At PNCA they were able to marry their performance and craft educations through the study of video production and performance and graduated with their B.F.A. in 2020.

Conceptually driven, Gwyneth makes work about human interaction and the taboo. Inspired by perception, experience and the relationship between the two, they use their creative practice to question the moral binaries of western society and the effect they have on a person's worldview. Through the combination of craft and the theatrical, they are able to use sculpture, installation, wearables, and performance to create an interactive experience for those who view their work. In creating these immersive moments they hope to inspire others to question the normal and foster empathy within them.
