The beauty of Cape Breton Island, the scenic gem of Nova Scotia, is world famous.  Yearly visual artists flock to its mountainous shorelines, seeking an opportunity to use their talents to ring the island’s beauty to paper and canvas.

Resident visual artists take advantage of the day in, day out meteor shower of imagery and inspiration that is part of life here to create scenes of lasting beauty.

The Arts North Gallery features prints from a number of artists of varying technique.  The watercolor prints from Christopher Gorey represent a traditional method of depicting the striking nature of Cape Breton’s natural beauty. Suzanne Craig employs a less traditional approach with her BioPrints of island plants, herbs and vegetables.  And Joan MacKenzie and Ann Schroeder employ framed fabric to create “prints” inspired by Cape Breton scenery and dance tradition.

Suzanne Craig

Suzanne Craig

In 1995, experimenting with reproduction of photographs, Suzanne developed a technique that produces what she named (and trademarked) “Bioprints”. By using high tech color reproduction equipment as a camera and combining her passion for plants she has had extraordinary results.

All subject material in Bioprints is from her garden, or the woods, fields and beaches nearby her home and studio in Western Cape Breton.

Bioprints are produced in limited numbers with archival colors on acid free paper, and are available matted or frame.

Suzanne is also an accomplished weaver, and her shawls are highly regarded.
