Af­ter many years spent liv­ing in the coun­try­side, Edith’s work of­ten fea­tures fauna and flora. The Cana­dian artist, now based in Mon­treal, com­bines these as­pects to her por­trai­ture of strong women. Edith also draws in­spi­ra­tion from pop cul­ture and mythol­ogy to give her work a sur­real, al­most hal­lu­ci­na­tory aes­thetic. She ex­tends this am­bi­tious and con­cep­tual ap­proach to gallery shows.

“For a re­cent show,” she says, “I wanted to cre­ate my own neigh­bour­hood, my own world – paint­ings that are in­ter­act­ing with each other, telling sto­ries.”

Her work has been ex­hib­ited across North Amer­ica and Europe. Sum­mer 2014 will see an ex­hi­bi­tion in Cal­i­for­nia.

“This one is about friend­ship – more specif­i­cally, the friends we lose. It has a fairy tale feel to it, and some­thing that’s very com­fort­ing to me.”

2 The an­i­mal in me Acrylic on wood, 11x14in

“This one was cre­ated for the An­i­mal in Me Prisma artist col­lec­tive group show. I guess the ti­tle says it all. This is prob­a­bly my favourite at the mo­ment. I’m just very happy with the ren­der­ing and the emo­tion ex­pressed.”
