Living Around the Canvas


Living Around the Canvas

Profile: Daphne Irving

by Sean McQuaid

Prince Edward Island painter Daphne Irving laughingly admits that she is "from away, or from across." She was born in New Jersey, but her parents came from Nova Scotia, where the family spent many summers. She and her husband Ron Irving, the recently retired artistic director of TheatrePEI, came to the Island in 1963 after getting married-and for most of the

Peter Murphy

by Lesley E. Sprague

Peter Murphy gets noticed. At well over six feet and 250 pounds it's not hard to make his presence known on Prince Edward Island but, it's not an easy task if you are a cartoonist who is trying to catch the eye of major publishers. He's here to say that it is possible to both live where you want to live and do what you want to do.

Murphy says, "I made a

by Leslie E. Sprague

I think anybody can do it. You just have to have a drum that's your own and spend time with it, you form a relationship with the drum," says twenty-four year old Chris Bertin of Summerside of his passion for Hand Drums and drum-making. "It's kind of like it's a trinity. There's the wood and then there's the skin. So, it's the tree and then it's the

Chairman of the Board
Profile: Scott Purdy

by Derek Martin

Scott Purdy's name is one that you'll see if you stay for the credits at the movies, As a re-recording mixer, he's one of the last people to work on a film before it gets printed and handed over to the theatre.

One More…
Profile: Wade Lynch

by Sean McQuaid

After several successful seasons, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline has become almost as much a part of the summer theatrical landscape as Anne of Green Gables. This will be its last season, though-and few will be sadder to see it end than comedian Wade Lynch, who has played opposite Marlane O'Brien's Patsy Cline throughout the run.

"It changed my life," Lynch

Gaea Inspires the Artist

Profile: Ambika Gail Rutherford

by Sean McQuaid

The hills are alive-as are the plains, the valleys, the seas, the skies and all things that issue from them. At least, that's what Ambika Gail Rutherford's art seems to tell us. Her paintings and prints celebrate life and landscape, often through goddesses and spirits who embody various aspects of the natural world.

"I use a human image," Rutherford
