THIS BOOK IS the journey, and in a sense the journal of an artist who has conducted a forty-five-year love affair with Newfoundland since he first set foot there in 1966. Travelling to every inhabited corner of the island, he has recorded his personal vision: painted almost entirely on-site, each image is the story of one day in his life, and one day in the life of a community.

About the Author:

Jean Claude Roy was born in Rochefort sur Mer, France, in 1948. Committed to becoming an artist since childhood, he first came in Newfoundland as a sailor with the French merchant marine at the age of 17. After living in Newfoundland for a number of years and taking Canadian citizenship, he now divides his time between France and Newfoundland. Entirely self-taught, he described his style as expressionist-colourist. His works can be found in public and private collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.

Review:

"Hums with the strength and buoyancy Roy sees in all his landscapes, throughout Newfoundland... " (-the Telegram 2012-09-19)
