Isle Royale Reflection
"As Artist-in-Residence, I found peace and inspiration while hiking and canoeing in Isle Royale National Park. From the mergansers fishing off Scoville point to the great blue heron in the shallows of Tobin Harbor, seeing the park's wildlife brought me a sense of wonder and imagination that greatly influences my artwork."
-Michelle Lassaline, 2018
