Us Galliott Studios girls just realised that we've put out a few posts that include our names, but haven't introduced ourselves! So here we go!
Jennifer owns Galliott Studios. She is a multidisciplinary artist, but her true love is textiles. She studied in Alberta and Nova Scotia before heading home to Newfoundland. She's a Woody Point girl born and bred and is very happy to spend here summers here at Galliott Studios! In the past, Jenn has travelled and lived in New Zealand, and has a number of works displayed across the North Island. Her latest tapestry is awesome. You can have a look, it's in the Devon House in the Craft Council 40th anniversay show. In 2011 she won the award for the Craft Council's award for Exceptional Achievement by a Young Craft Person. She was also nominated for CBC Emerging Artist in the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council's 2012 awards. Jenn likes ray guns, shiny things and enjoys climbing trees.
Olivia is the new girl at Galliott Studios. She works mainly with metalwork and jewellery; and she loves making pretty things out of rocks and bones. She does lots of work on the blog and likes putting new things on her website! Check it out here http://www.oliviaball.com/. Liv is British and has exhibited her work across the UK.She first came to Woody Point last summer as Artist in Residence for Gros Morne National Park. She's freelanced for a few arts companies back in England and worked in Europe. She's got a great Yorkshire accent but is constantly on the look out for bears.
Here's a photo of us having fun in front of the studio! Liv's on the left, Jenn on the right.
