Her work has been exhibited in group shows in Canada and China. She received her MFA from NSCAD University in 2007.
Liana Schmidt was born in Vancouver and lives in Toronto. Working in photography, video and installation, Schmidt’s work revolves around injecting the absurd and fantastical into everyday life.

The visual language around the dramatic and theatrical are also central themes in her work.
