Honouring Elders and Anishinabek Artists: Connecting Art and Traditions

“I do a lot of protection paintings.  Protection and Mother Earth are always big themes that I use.  The wolf is a protector – here he is shown howling at the moon.”

“I’m a self-taught artist. I first learnt art in elementary school and then high school.  I also spent a lot of time watching community members.  Originally I was hoping to be a tattoo artist but I switched to canvas pretty quickly.  I watch you tube to learn different skills.”
