JoEllen Brydon was born in Toronto and grew up in the farming community of Cavan township, Ontario, Canada.    Her vibrant paintings, in oil and acrylics, tell the day to day stories of people she meets as well as tales of her ancestors rooted in County Tyrone,  Northern Ireland,  and in her beloved Cavan hills, Ontario. Through out her career Brydon has worked on paintings and installations that explore buried stories and long forgotten local histories.

But Papa was not a good driver either. 36” x 28”
