If you found me you probably already know that I am a visual artist. I’m also a writer and an educator and I’m from St. John’s, Newfoundland. I live in a 1950’s-style house with my artist husband, David Baltzer (who took this photo of me at my drafting table).
On this website you will find galleries showing my artwork–according to project and medium.
My woodblock engravings are available at Dozen Odd, Carbonear; Running the Goat Press, Tor’s Cove; Watershed Coffee House, Petty Harbour, and Devon House, the Craft Council’s shop and The Red Ochre Gallery, both on Duckworth Street in St. John’s.
If you are playing Pokemon Go, you may be impressed to hear that my “Out of the Box” painting of Queens Victoria and Mary on the corner of Commonwealth and Richard Nolan Drive, in Mount Pearl, is an official Pokestop! In September 2016 I painted a second traffic box for the city of Mount Pearl, “One Word 4 War: The Trail of the Caribou” on the corner of Ruth and Michener, next to Mount Pearl Intermediate.
- On-going Research on the S.S. Caribou–check out my page “S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942”. I am trying to learn everything I can about the people aboard the Caribou on October 14, 1942. If you can add anything to my “current list” please leave a comment.
- Art & History: Show and Talk, by Jennifer Morgan. 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, 2017, Admiralty House Annex, Mount Pearl. My work on postcards and stamps, my comic book, and my traffic boxes, are all linked by my interest in Newfoundland and Labrador’s history, and my place in it. This exhibit will be launched with a talk when I share survivor statements, and the floor plan of the S.S. Caribou. Descendants of people who were on the Caribou that night, may be able to find out exactly where their relative’s berths were that fatal night.
- Winterset in Summer Literary Festival: Interactive Comic Book Session 4 p.m. Saturday, August 12, 2017. I’ll be sharing this panel with Dawn Baker and Kathy Sweetapple, in which I am prepared to do an exposé on my own futile attempt to cash in on my home and native land and the latest publishing fad.
- 75th Anniversary of the Sinking of the S.S. Caribou. The town of Channel-Port aux Basques is having a special weekend in October 14, 2017. I’ll post more here, as I learn what’s happening.
