Thomasina Pidgeon’s life and work has taken many forms including being a professional climber, coach, writer and avid traveler. Since leaving Newfoundland at age 18, she has been exploring, learning, and ‘nomading’ out of various vans and on different continents for over 20 years.
Thomasina’s semi-nomadic lifestyle has cultivated within her a deep respect and appreciation for natural spaces and instilled the importance of culture, community and minimal living. Reflective in nature, Thomasina enjoys inquiring into the truth of the matter at hand. Feeling a deep responsibility for Mother Earth and human rights, Thomasina is a passionate activist for social and environmental justice. Through use of words and images, Thomasina shares experiences and strives to dig deep and inspire discussion about the reality and kind of future we are creating.
Based out of the traditional, ancestral and unceded Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Territory, Thomasina runs a small gym, and balances motherhood, full-time political science studies and various passions like climbing, writing and photography.
