Epiphany Couch is a multidisciplinary artist whose work examines how personal history, generational knowledge, and storytelling shape identity. By recontextualizing traditional mediums such as bookmaking and photography, she looks to present new ways through which we can examine our pasts, the natural world, and our ancestors. Couch’s work is unapologetically personal, drawing from family stories, her childhood experience, archival research, and even her own dreams. She utilizes the book not only as a format through which to share these stories but as a precious object — intimate and heirloom-like.
Couch is of Yakama and Scandinavian lineage, yet grew up in the Puyallup Nation. Currently, she lives in Portland, Oregon where she works as the studio assistant to artist Wendy Red Star. Couch is also a freelance writer helping brands use story to better connect with their consumers.
