Back to Gros Morne Artists


 


Location:
Toronto, ON

About the Gros Morne experience:
I shared a residency for the month of September of 2002 with Liz Parkinson, a fellow artist/printmaker that I've known, camped and worked with over the past ten years. We enjoyed the residency immensely. The weather was perfectly warm and sunny in the beginning of the month and blustery with remnants of a hurricane at the end. It had all the meteorological bells and whistles.

Even though the Park Service was in the process of winding down the season, we still got to talk with Parks People, go on tours, and teach a Styrofoam printmaking to a class of high school students at Cowhead. It was foggy but nice.

I worked primarily in sketchbooks when I was there. I'm a hunter/gatherer kind of landscape artist. Both of us are avid hikers so we did a lot just by ourselves, but we can't thank Anne Merceau, the Interpretation Specialist and Michael Burzynski enough for their boundless knowledge, hospitality and enthusiasm.
