Artists Statement

Some of the native First Nations believed that every individual had a personal animal spirit or totem that looked after him or her throughout life. When the person died it was thought that they returned from the spirit world in the guise of their animal totem. The 'Animal Spirit' works attempt to catch the essence and energy of the different animals as they return to earth from the spirit world.he spirit world.
