Paige Kennedy was a visual artist based in rural Pictou County, Nova Scotia who passed away on August 6th, 2014 due to a terminal illness. During her long artistic career, Paige showed and sold her work in many venues in Halifax and beyond, including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Eye Level Gallery, Mount Saint Vincent University, and the Fraser Cultural Center.

At a young age, Paige discovered art as both an ability and a refuge. As her world view shifted away from the military values of her upbringing toward one of social and ecological justice—where the needs of all life are met—art became a way to express this evolving vision. Paige’s artwork celebrates women’s experiences and the female body in its age imperfections.
