Cape St. Mary's
I spent countless hours playing in my grandparents' attic, "The Crow's Nest". There I discovered treasures such as trunks of Victorian clothing, apothecary chests, musical instruments, envelopes of gold leaf, ivory tusks, piano keys, carvings and oil paintings. I would take my discoveries to my grandparents, to hear the story of each mysterious object. These treasures continue to inspire me as does hunting in antique shops at home and when travelling. My work explores the connections that both Newfoundlanders and the French have with the Grand Banks and, as I discovered, my ancestral connections to the history of both places.
