Shirley Greer

"A series of bizarre co-incidences in the summer of 1999 led to my enrolling in Sir Wilfred Grenfell Colleges Fine Arts Program. I was 53 at the time. I graduated with my BFA (visual) four years later, with no expectations for what might lie ahead for me as an artist. I loved the university environment, the learning and research opportunities, and all the wonderful discoveries that I was making there.

 In fact, what lay ahead for me were connections in a community of artists, opportunities to show and sell my work, opportunities for residencies, teaching, grants, travel and continued growth both as an artist and a person. There was also a fresh new focus, new conversations, a new beginning. Discovering these opportunities at this point in my life has been a most wonderful gift."
