Clifford George is an artist and storyteller living in Whiteway, Newfoundland and Labrador. While he’s primarily self-taught, Clifford also received a formal art education at the College of Trades and Technology in St. John’s. He has painted and studied with well-known Newfoundland artists like Gerald Squires, Frank LaPointe and Don Wright. Clifford also worked as a medical artist at the Health Sciences Centre at Memorial University.  You can find Clifford’s work at the Christina Parker Gallery in St. John’s.

In this episode, Clifford shares a few stories with Heritage NL researcher Katie Crane about Newfoundland faeries, his painting, and his advocacy work on behalf of Newfoundland ponies.

This episode is part of a special series about the Baccalieu Trail region of Newfoundland and Labrador. Join us as we explore the hidden gems of the Baccalieu Trail- from stories of phantom ship sightings to local art and history.
