I am an artist and children’s wear designer in St. John’s Newfoundland, currently working out of a studio in the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation. I find inspiration and comfort in the strong craft and heritage preservation of this province.
My love of making blossomed in my first job at a reenactment museum in Thunder Bay, Ontario where I recreated fur trade era garments. This work gave me an appreciation for traditional fabrics, patterns, and methods, which I carry on throughout my work today.
Upon my move from Ontario to Newfoundland, I found that same love of heritage everywhere, and now blend the traditional designs from my life with the culture I have become a part of.
For as long as I can remember, I have been making things with my hands. I grew up surrounded by…
Handmade, one of a kind wooden spoons and bowls.
Unique, traditionally made and high quality leather goods.
The Quidi Vidi Village Plantation is a craft incubation facility, designed to accelerate the growth of emerging artists and their businesses.
Each of the craftspeople who lease studios in the Plantation have passed through a rigorous selection process, and must participate in an extensive training regime.
We welcome the public to come and watch these craftspeople work, and to support them by purchasing some of their fine craft items.
