Merrideth MacDonald – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Merrideth MacDonald

Merrideth has been working part time in Cape Breton’s craft sector for almost 25 years. Working for multiple shop owners and makers, she is familiar with many of the established and upcoming artisans and is always looking forward to seeing what people are creating. She loves being able to share her knowledge of Cape Breton artists with the public and takes great pride in living and working on this creative island.

Outside of her gallery position, she has a studio locally where she makes her collage pieces and works on other artistic and educational projects. As a former school library technician and pack rat, her space is filled with old books and magazines and found objects destined for future creative use. In her life outside of work and studio, you will find her volunteering and fostering at the animal shelter.
