« The Medicine Bear-ie »

Malartic | 20 x 25 x 2,5 inches | 2022 | Acrylic

A symbol of medicine, but also an animal from the artist’s clan, the bear represents her family. The bright colours inspire joy and attract children’s attention. The strawberries represent both love and the heart, which are central to physical and mental health.
