Cole, Laura

Many Facets
Profile by Jane Ledwell

In Ontario, what was one in a million here is one of a kind,” says Laura Cole of her chosen Island home, where she settled almost ten years ago first in Pinette and then in Charlottetown to pursue her passion for craft and creation.

“We came here to retire…someday,” she adds with a wry smile, in the busy studio/office where she creates glass-on-glass mosaic and

Martin, Derek

Night Watchman
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I’ve had a lot of different jobs, and most of them feed into my work here in the cinema,” says City Cinema owner Derek Martin. “I’ve been a stage manager for theatre, and I know about making sure a show is running on time, managing a crowd. I’ve worked in a supermarket, so I know all the pop bottle labels should be facing out, and to check the best-before

White, Nancy

Thoroughly Island
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Visiting from Toronto, writer and singer-songwriter Nancy White calls herself a “lapsed Maritimer.” Nationally-known for wry wit in songs and musical political commentary, she adds self-deprecatingly, “You have to invent some phrases for yourself or else people will do it to you.”

Strength of Line
Profile by Jane Ledwell

There’s a real strength in line you don’t get with a lot of other arts,” says master woodworker Diane Gaudreau of her craft. Her strong and graceful design has led to pieces selected for the Cheoungju International Biennale in South Korea and the 2010 Cultural Olympiad—and for commissions such as the Northern Lights Award.

Diane says, “You embrace the grain,

Stinson, Hank

A Normal Life
Profile by Jane Ledwell

A small-town boy from a British Columbia pulp-and-paper town, Hank Stinson has been active as an actor and in the theatre since 1969. And yet, in an introspective conversation, he insists he has had “two careers.”

“From the time I graduated in 1969, to the late 1970s, I was pursuing a theatrical ‘career,’” Hank recalls. “I worked most theatres across the

It Takes a Village
Profile by Jane Ledwell

The area once known as “Clifton Corner” once was a “bustling village” with a two-storey general store where you could buy everything from beans to furniture. The village continued to bustle as, years later, the original Presbyterian manse became a new general store run by Kitty Cotton, who was also postmistress. “The store was where people would gather on

Doyle, Teresa

On the Road of Song
Profile by Jane Ledwell

In 1980, when an adventurous, just-out-of-school Teresa Doyle played the Winnipeg Folk Festival, less than a handful of folk musicians were touring out of the East Coast.

At the 2013 East Coast Music Awards in Halifax, the Island singing legend and 12 other of those pioneers received a 25th Anniversary Award. “It was a really nostalgic night,” she says,
