I am a telescope for queer space.

The universe, by nature, is mysterious and queer.


Exhausted by perspectives that lack the imagination and diversity it demands; I am revealing the queerness of the cosmos through visual narrative.


My name is Mackenzie Bedford. I am a multi-disciplinary artist obsessed with combining colour, light and movement.

You can find me animating, painting murals, or projection mapping across Alberta. 

Visual influences stem from growing up as a closeted queer kid in a small town, using an early 2000s internet connection to connect, explore and escape.

Unsurprisingly, they still find themselves chronically online.


Originally from, Ktunaxa Territory, Golden, BC, they are now based in Mohkinstiss, Calgary, AB since 2011. They built her creative foundations with a Visual Arts Diploma from Red Deer College before applying them with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing at Mount Royal University.


Establishing themselves in Calgary by managing community and communications for startups and nonprofits for several years inspired them to venture out as a freelance creative in 2020.

They're also an introverted sci-fi lover with a penchant for karaoke.


During downtime they are toiling away at an independent animated short, BEACON.


Off-duty, they are picking up the art of burlesque and costume-making.

Personal mantra: Leave it better than you found it.
