She was born in the back of a truck or dropped from a UFO depending on whom you talk to. Dayna McLeod hails from somewhere in Alberta. She lends a quirky, Western perspective to her performative and video work. McLeod honed her skills at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary with a diploma in sculpture, and is currently finishing her MFA at Concordia University. By being active in the performance community in Montreal, McLeod has demonstrated that she can get along with others and not cry during nap time. McLeod's artistic endeavors are peppered with an informed academic opinion, while her feminism is tempered with an irreverent and often bizarre sense of humour.
