Sal Lovink McKinnell (They/She) is a white queer settler artist currently practicing Tkaronto (Toronto). Sal’s work is textile-based and strongly relies on research of material, colour, emotion and engages with a sense of play. Their practice is focused on creating work that explores the sensorial experience of touch.

They're compelled by lines and fluff and textures run amuck, by repetition, repetition, repetition on repeat. Sal has worked as an arts facilitator and teacher, researcher, coordinator, and textile consultant. They’re looking forward to biking in the sweet summer heat, feeling sand beneath their feet, and a soft touch.
