Isle Royale Reflection
""Taking The Path The Other Way" was the title of the presentations I gave during my two weeks as artist-in-residence at Isle Royale National Park. I came to the island with the goal of spending as much time as possible exploring and discovering what Isle Royale had to offer me as a visual artist. My approach to the creative process is centered on searching for inspiration by looking at the surrounding environment from different and multiple perspectives, hence, “taking the path the other way”. I found an exciting, unexpected blend of influences representing both the island’s natural and cultural heritage.
