Gillian Maradyn-Jowsey is an interdisciplinary artist, originally from Aylmer, Quebec, living in Lunenburg, NS. She graduated from NSCAD University in 2017 with a BFA in Ceramics.

Maradyn-Jowsey divides her time between continuing to grow her ceramic and textile based practice and engaging with the community by facilitating art-based workshops and teaching at the Lunenburg School of the Arts. Often her practice is invigorated by meaningful creative exchange and collaboration. She creates functional and sculptural work grounded

in her interest in craft and design for everyday living. When she’s not in her studio, you’ll find her digging around in her garden or getting lost in the woods with her dog Frances.

Alongside teaching at the LSA, Gillian is currently preparing for a 3 person exhibition at Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery that opens in February 2023, and is participating in a 10 month-long business program through the Acadia Entrepreneurship Center.
