JoDee Samuelson – The Cove Journal: Life on the Islands South Shore

Over the eight years of writing her popular monthly column for PEI’s entertainment newspaper, The Buzz, artist JoDee Samuelson captures the soft edges of rural life on the peaceful South Shore of Prince Edward Island.

The passing of the seasons, the rise and fall of gardens, the friendship with neighbours, and simple daily life are all presented against the endearing backdrop of “the Cove.” JoDee’s expressive illustrations that accompany each chapter add the perfect touch.

Born and raised on the Canadian prairies, filmmaker, and artist JoDee Samuelson has lived on the beautiful South Shore of Prince Edward Island for the past thirty years. Her animated films have been shown at festivals around the world, winning numerous awards for this Island filmmaker. She is a member of the Canoe Cove Women’s Institute, a woodcarver, painter, gardener, and a baker of delicious bread.
