Razielle has been in writing residencies at several international art centres, including the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity; and gratefully acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts to conduct creative research on the topics of the epistolary form, the epic poem, identity, landscape, and eco-poetics.

Inspired by dreamlife and the beauty of natural organisms, her aesthetic is an eco-poetics through which she explores themes of structure and formlessness, alongside the complexity of personal vs. interpersonal identity (de)formation in the advent of infinite access to unlimited information.
In a convergence of multiple mediums, she seeks to create with an all-inclusive, expansive poetics in mind.
