Photographer Bio

Clow's first job as a photographer was in 2007 when she worked for Life Touch Photography taking school photos. Photography is a wonderful and creative outlet in which Clow captures “moments in time” as a professional photographer for weddings, different local events, non-profit organizations such as the Big Bike Race of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and in past theater performances at the Yarc (Yarmouth Regional Art Center.) Her photographs have been published in 2003 Heritage House of Nova Scotia, local newspapers and won photo various contests. Companies, such as Staples Store in Yarmouth also use her photos. Clow was the photographer for Yarmouth and Acadien Shores Tourism Magazine 2010 edition. Her photo was also selected to be in the Canadian Wildlife Federation 2014 Calendar. As a visual artist for over 30 years, photography has been a powerful influence on Clow’s art.

With time restraints, she found herself picking up the camera more often than her paint brushes. She always has enjoyed taking photographs and they aided her in the creation of detailed paintings, but now has it turned into a successful photography business.

For about ten years she was an owner and operator of studio galleries with photography, artwork and a splash of local handmade jewellery at various locations downtown Yarmouth.

Moving in 2013, Clow went to British Columbia, which ignited yet another dimension of her creativity, in response to the majestic grandeur of the mountains, valleys and waterways. Due to an illness in her family, she returned to her hometown of Yarmouth in 2014 and had an exhibition of photos at the Waterfront Gallery in Yarmouth.

In 2014 Clow was presented with a certificate from The Members of The House Of Assembly, moved by Zach Churchill MLA Yarmouth, that acknowledge Clows' contribution to the artistic community and Nova Scotia.

2015 Clow had successful art exhibition at Th'YARC (The Yarmouth Arts Regional Centre),

During 2016, Clow was a photographer for "Dreams Take Flight" which is a national volunteer charitable organization dedicated to providing a trip of a lifetime to special children. A large solo art and photography exhibition 2017 at Th’Yarc, Yarmouth N.S that circumference its walls.

2018 was a busy year with Managing Sealand gallery with two locations, downtown Charlottetown and at Charlottetown Seaport, which was a wonderful opportunity to promote other artists, crafters,  photographers,  and sculptors.

For a month, in 2019, in Chiang Mai, Thailand, she submerged herself in creating a new body of work that meshed visual art and photography depicting Thai history and culture as she participated in an art residency at Com Peung, which is the longest ongoing independent artist residency in Thailand. During that time in Thailand Clow studied with well-known architect learning how they make massive statues for temples with concrete mortar and metal (that was overseen by the monks)  they were delighted that she kept a photo record of the progress   plus she had hands on experience with using concrete.

In Siem Reap, Cambodia at Future Opportunity Kbalromeas. (Donation funded) she experienced teaching English, also sharing photos of her country and talking about art to the students.

Being employed, by Universal Portrait Studios in 2019, in New Brunswick, was a wonderful way to use photography talents.

Clow feels that in return for the gifts that have been bestowed on her, she donates a percentage of my sales to the local food bank.
