Laurena Finéus is a Caribbean-Canadian visual artist. She is studying towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Ottawa. Her work explores representations of womanhood, cultural loss, sexuality and interpersonal relationships, and is informed by her black, female identity. Finéus’ lived experiences are centered in each of her pieces in order to create safe spaces that engage and empower her key audience — women of colour.

She is currently based in Ottawa, Ontario.
