Marlene Creates, Newfoundland, Environmental Artist
Marlene Creates, recently invested into the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador, is a Canadian environmental artist and poet who lives on the island of Newfoundland. For over 40 years her art has been an exploration of the reciprocal relationships between human experience, memory, language and the land. Her work has been presented in over 350 exhibitions and screenings across Canada and internationally. She has been engaged with memory mapping for over three decades — both in her own artwork and by leading workshops with over 3,000 people, including school children, university students, and seniors. In 2019 she received a Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.
