Emerging Artist Award, VANL-CARFAC Excellence in Visual Arts Awards

The twelfth annual Excellence in Visual Arts Awards took place on May 26th 2017 at The Rooms, St. John’s, Newfoundland. The event was hosted by Sheilagh O’Leary. The EVA Awards are the only awards program solely dedicated to celebrating the work of the visual artists of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Emerging Artist Award honours the promising start made by an emerging visual artist in the early stages of their career. This year, I was delighted and honoured to receive The Emerging Artist Award, especially since I was nominated with my incredible and inspiring best friend Virginia Mitford, and another amazing artist Jessie Donaldson. This award was sponsored by Grenfell Campus, Memorial University.
