This latest series of paintings documents life around a pond and bush-lot on my in-laws’ property in the Upper Ottawa Valley.
The subjects include plants, insects, birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, and amphibians.

Niagara Artists Centre is located on the ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples.

This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement
