Ever since Caroline started her artwork, my husband has been sending her pictures of Manitoulin Island, making sure to let her know it is one of the most beautiful places in Ontario and as a result, she should paint it.
A 50th wedding anniversary finally provided us with the perfect opportunity to put Caroline’s talent to the test. We asked her to fuse together several photos of the Island so we could offer the painting as a gift. After a few conversations to explain our vision and what elements of the painting were important to us, including making sure that the painting was also representative of the Indigenous culture of the Island, we left Caroline to do what she does best. Combined with her ability to listen and provide technical insight, Caroline’s creativity resulted in a beautiful piece of art that exceeded expectations. We were absolutely delighted with the artwork she produced and can’t thank her enough!
