Meet Artist Devon Bernard

We caught up with artist Devon Bernard from Prince Edward Island to learn more
about his art, inspiration and photographing the Island.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m 26 years old and I am from Prince Edward Island,
Canada. I grew up on the western part of the island in a small community called
Pleasant View. I now live in Cascumpec with my wife Kalyn and daughter Adeline.
I am the welding instructor at Holland College, and I really enjoy my job. I love
being outdoors, exercising and photography.

When did you first find a passion for photography and what inspires your

I started my photography journey two years ago. I wasn’t consistent at the time
and couldn’t find what I loved to photograph. In the summer of 2020, I began to
capture and document the beauty of Prince Edward Island. I quickly fell in love
with showcasing the island because it allowed me to be creative and adventure.

Getting out and exploring the island inspires my work the most. I love telling a
story about the island through my photos. 

What other East Coast creator(s) inspire your work?

Eye for This - Chris Leger had a big role in my love for photography and his work
inspires me. 

What is your favourite East Coast location to shoot?

Definitely Cape Breton if not PEI. There is so much to see and explore there. 

What does "the spirit of the East Coast" mean to you?

Beautiful landscapes, kind people and endless adventure.
