All She Wants to Do is Dance
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Martha Nicholson is a woman who can think on her feet. She opened her Island Dance Academy a scant two years ago in 1993, and now boasts a thriving student body-including, believe it or not, a boys' class. "It's really taken off," Nicholson says.

Nicholson teaches pupils as young as four years old, and her program goes as far as age eighteen. At

Interview with the Writer
Profile by Sean McQuaid

J.J. Steinfeld's world-weary eyes and gently friendly voice offset his occasional fidget or stammer as I scribble his words into my notepad. He remains skeptical of this interview business-like a jungle headhunter wary of a camera trapping his soul.

Steinfeld, of course, has nothing to be nervous about. He is one of Prince Edward Island's most

Gathering of the Clowns
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Ron and Linda Wagner start their day as many couples do, with Linda tending their daughter while Ron dresses for work. The difference here lies in how Ron dresses for work: in white makeup and huge shoes. Ron and Linda are a couple of clowns-literally. Pies and seltzer are their bread and butter.

Ron has been clowning professionally for decades,

Sketch of the Artist
Profile by Sean McQuaid

I steal a sip of apple juice while the small, graying brunette across the table continues speaking, repeatedly folding and unfolding her place setting with methodical delicacy. Dale McNevin seems compelled to impose art on her surroundings in one form or another, a trait that serves her well in her career as an illustrator.

McNevin was born on the

Bernard, Maurice

The Lighted Brush
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Though born in Toronto, Island artist Maurice Bernard has always had roots on P.E.I. His parents were Island Acadians, but Bernard grew up in army bases across Canada since his father was a military man. In 1982, Maurice returned to his roots, taking up permanent residence in Summerside, P.E.I., where he established a full-time career as an artist.

The Oleannekenstein Monster
Profile by Sean McQuaid

It's been said that there are no small parts, only small actors: petite, soft-spoken Nancy McLure would qualify (literally) as a small actor, but she has made a big impression on the Island theatre scene as a founding member of Off Stage Theatre and a longtime associate of Theatre PEI - with whom McLure recently landed the female lead in their

Redstone
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Steve Sharratt and Margie Carmichael have established a reputation for themselves as a popular singing and songwriting duo, but they're breaking new ground with musician Sigrid Rolfe as the trio called Redstone. "We thought of calling ourselves Steve and the Old Babes," Sharratt says, but Redstone was the first name they all agreed on.

Sharratt and Carmichael are
