Back to Gros Morne Artists


St.Michael's, NFLD

About the Gros Morne Experience:
Over the last 20 years I have traveled to a lot of amazing, remote and beautiful places in this country, doing residencies and teaching workshops for various arts councils, universities and art colleges.

I've loved every moment of the swash-and-buckle adventures, discovering parts of Canada that I knew nothing about, meeting and working with new people, making new art-friends... and drawing all the way.

However, none of that compares with the Gros Morne Residency, in making such a huge impact on the way I make art. Suddenly, my thinking made sort of a sharp right-hand turn, and a new way of dealing with the environment emerged in my imagery.

Works that I have done based on my Gros Morne journals have been exhibited in many Canadian cities, in the USA, the British Isles, Japan and Taiwan.

Three years, 2 books and all of these solo and group exhibitions later, I'm still going down the road that began in Woody Point in July 1998; and there are still so many ideas in my head based on a progression of what started in Gros Morne that have yet to be dealt with.
