DARCIE DARK

Darcie McNeill (she/her) has a B.A. in Psychology from UVIC and has an extensive lived experience which she has drawn on to provide peer outreach leadership work.  She is the President of Furniture Sharehouse Society, a not-for-profit society that provides furniture and household goods to those in need.  www.furnituresharehouse.ca
 

Darcie also works as a resident-artist at Substance Drug Checking, where she paints colourful eye catching murals on their windows.

 

"I create art that is colourful, whimsical and full of life. My murals and illustrations are heavily influenced by classic cartoons, folk art and pop culture and I'm always looking for new ways to convey social justice messages through my work.

 

I also make hand-pressed heat transfer vinyl apparel, jewellery and greeting cards. These items can be viewed in-person at Substance Drug Checking, where I'm proud to have my own retail display cabinet. Every item I make is special and unique – I hope you enjoy them as much as I

do."

Darcie developed adult onset scoliosis from degenerative disc disease around 2019 and lives with chronic pain, which can be quite frustrating as it limits the amount of work she can physically do, however she remains ambitious and motivated.   Darcie spends a lot of her free time training her Shih-Tzu named Joey and also enjoys baking treats to share with friends and clients.
