About Jaleen Grove

I was born on Canada's west coast and I have lived most of my life there. I've also lived in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and New York. Currently I live in Hamilton, Ontario, near Toronto.

I was a full time artist until 2004, when I began my MA studies. I have worked professionally in many areas of the visual arts, from photography to installation to sculpture to web design to illustration. Mostly I paint.

Coming from a family of artists and scientists, I have always taken inquisitiveness pretty seriously. One day I found that making art was not enough for me--I also needed to write about these inquisitions we call art. The act of creating has always been very important to me and that is essentially what I write about: artists' creating, and viewers' creating (which is often called understanding) as they absorb a work of art.
