Generosity of Spirit
Profile by Jane Ledwell

It's not that Joan MacNeill doesn't like to talk about art. She clearly loves to visit galleries, to paint, and to encourage artistry in others. But to get her to talk about herself is tricky business. She strays all too willingly away from the topic of her own work to appreciative stories of her family, her students, and her teachers through the years.

Earth, Air and Fire
Profile by P. Richards

A large brick kiln stands in the shed behind Frieder Hermann's restored 19th century farmhouse in Malpeque, Prince Edward Island. In the next room is a clay-encrusted potter's wheel and other tools of the trade. This is the workshop of North Shore Pottery.

For the last ten years on PEI, Frieder Hermann has been creating a pottery here; pottery which is

National Pride
Profile by Jane Ledwell

What distinguishes Terry Graff as director of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery and Museum (CCAGM) and what makes him good at his job, is that he is so utterly unembarrassed to think of the Centre as a national cultural institution. Too often, Islanders subconsciously accept an attitude that slyly insinuates that institutions of national importance, by

Two for the Show
Profile by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

Spending Canada Day at Orwell Village is a tradition for many in eastern PEI. It's a lazy, lemonade and ice-cream sort of day. There are races-potato sack or three legged to the schoolhouse and back. And, also traditional, there are twin boys who, long legs and hair flying, win most of the races in their age group. After they have caught their

A Greenmount Boy Grows Up
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Everything in UPEI history professor David Weale's office is Y2K compliant-no sign of an appliance with a microchip of any kind. Before we talk, he copies out lines from his new one-man-show, Greenmount Boy, in long-hand on lined paper. But microchips or no microchips, David Weale has caught a different kind of millennium bug, because he's writing

Living By the Sea
Profile by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

Nancy Perkins' paintings make people smile. They show women in old fashioned bathing costumes frolicking in the surf, mermaids catching rides from flying fish, or elegant tea parties surrounded by flowers and sea.

"There's always the sea," says Nancy. "It's the colour that sends me into orbit-the bluest greens and the rust and sand. They're such

Adventures in Progress

Profile by Jane Ledwell

As a novelist who writes primarily for young audiences, Elaine Breault Hammond has a chance to inspire many budding writers. On a book tour across Canada, she had a chance to compare notes with a classroom full of six-year-olds who had just finished writing their own book and were busy illustrating it. When it came time to ask questions, one young

Growing Things
Profile by Jane Ledwell

The best way to organize an interview with Laurie Brinklow is to schedule it to coincide with another of her tasks.

In a busy week, Laurie's schedule includes her job as publishing coordinator at the Institute of Island Studies; free-lance editing projects; swimming; rehearsals for two choirs; meetings with an eating group, a book club, and a folk music
