In the fall of 2014, I was exploring my relationship to the land in which I grew up: the Canadian Prairie. My grandparents were immigrants, and they loved living here. Was my connection to the land the same as theirs? On a walk through a preserved area of natural prairie, it struck me that the wildness and beauty I was seeing was exactly what they saw when they arrived. In that moment, I realized that I was rooted here too. It was precious to me too. Aspen Parkland captures the moment when I resolved to become a "Prairie" artist.
