Haley MacKeil is an interdisciplinary artist and educator currently working in Providence, RI. Her practice is informed by site research and slow, methodical processes that evidence a reciprocal exchange of self and site. To empathize with alternative, lived experiences, her work negotiates what is real or imagined, logical or emotional — where the natural world is embodied as something rhythmic, alive, and breathing.  

She has contributed to collaborative workshops, exhibitions, and printed editions with artists, project spaces, and institutions in Providence, Berlin, Boston, and New York. She earned her BA in Visual Arts and Biology from Bowdoin College and MFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design.
