Aimie Botelho works out of her shop in King City, Ontario. She studied sculpture and drawing, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Education. She works part-time as an apprentice to Master Blacksmith Sandra Dunn, and served as the Editor for the Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association. She has participated in international projects in Europe, and toured 9 countries to study their collections of contemporary and historical ironwork to inform her own practice. She mostly works with hand-forged metal, making pieces with moveable components, simple mechanisms, or wearable parts. Aimie also finds it odd to speak about herself in third person.
