I want to share something that means a lot to me... Last year one of my pieces, a three-panel painting (triptych) called Tonto, was purchased by Debra Chenier of Chenier Fine Arts gallery and donated to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for their Cancer Centre. Debra’s art donation is in memory of her friend and colleague, Ken Wabegijig, who passed away earlier in the year of cancer. Ken was a well-liked traditional craftsman known in the community for his smudge bowls, rattles, and dreamcatchers. More recently my father was successfully treated at the Cancer Centre, making this contribution even more important to me. In fact, it is the proudest moment of my art career.
