Thank you for visiting! My name is Evie Dunville, born in the beautiful K’jipuktuk (Halifax), Nova Scotia. I wear a lot of hats – sometimes jeweller, sometimes doula, sometimes poet, sometimes singer, sometimes a writer – undeniably a hiker and an Art Therapist.
I started my journey to Art Therapy at Mount Saint Vincent University (2004), completing a BA in Psychology and English, followed by a quick trip around the world, teaching English in South Korea. Once back in Nova Scotia I completed a BFA in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing from NSCAD University (2010), before earning my certification as an Art Therapist from the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute (2016). I continue learning each day, from my clients, from the earth, and through my colleagues and other professionals.
I believe in creating a sustainable and accessible environment for creativity and wellness to flourish. I often intertwine the written word with art, creating a body of work wherein the form is either emphasized or accentuated by prose and inspired by nature. This intentional approach permeates my sessions, meeting each new individual with respect, faith and acceptance.
