Totem - NorthernShy Digital Art 2013
2 of my Photos Layered with one of my Art Journal Pages

Born & raised in Northwestern Ontario – the Canadian North is ‘home’ to me and will always hold a very special place in my heart.  It was a fantastic place to grow up.  I suppose many people feel that way about the place they grew up - but I can’t help feeling that the Northern experience was extra special.  I have cousins that grew up on the ocean shores of California and, yes, there are times I’m envious – very envious - and there are times I dream about 'what would have been' if I'd put a little rucksack over my shoulder and headed off to live with them.  But then I would have missed that extra special Northern Life.  And then I wouldn’t have been me.
