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.
