Although Matt Gould was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, he has lived Toronto, Vancouver, and the south of France as well as a seven-year stint sailing the seven seas aboard a variety of cruise ships. He has been living in Red Deer, Alberta since the early 2000's, enjoying and taking advantage of the wonderfully complex trails and pathways that criss-cross the city.
Gould has spent most of his life in the arts and has expressing himself through painting, drawing, fibre, book illustration, singing, acting, script writing and theatre direction. He has taught Contemporary Art in Process at Red Deer College and acted as Artistic Director/Playwright in Residence for the award-winning Tree House Youth Theatre. He has been an active member of the Alberta Craft Council, CARFAC, the Red Deer Arts Council, and Theatre Alberta. Matt continues to push boundaries in his studio practice hoping, one day, "to get it right"!
