Description & About the Artist

Gros Morne National Park, established in 1973, is a breathtakingly beautiful and richly varied environment on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 for its geological and ecological importance, it is known for its fjords and other glacier-carved landscapes, the immense scientific significance of its geology, and its rich and varied biodiversity in boreal, sub-arctic, and marine ecosystems. 

Because of the visual drama of its landscape, the park area is a magnet for both artists and scientists. In 1988, the Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador and Parks Canada established a Gros Morne Artist in Residence Programme. Christine Koch was invited to be one of the three artists to inaugurate the programme. 

HEr time in the Park as official Artist in Residence was transformative personally and professionally, and resulted in her establishing a home and studio in Woody Point, one of the enclave communities within Gros Morne's Borders. She has spent her summers there for the past twenty-five years. Her studio-gallery at 13 Back Road in Woody Point is open to the public in the summer months. Christine resides in St. John's, NL, in the winter, where she works out of a downtown harbourside studio.
