Artist-in-Residence

Every year, Entershine hires a local artist to produce five new designs for our popular seasonal bookmark program. We are delighted to announce that the artist for the July 2022-June 2023 year, is Meg Arpin.

Meg Arpin is a Thunder Bay-based, multi-disciplined artist; a mum, a wife, and a “self-proclaimed hobbit”. They relish the outdoors, gardening, camping, photography, community, and cats. Meg can be found on Instagram @witchwoodforest
