The majestic moose is a Canadian icon and is depicted here, in the signature style of this Ontario artist, on a piece of distinctive burl of Manitoba maple. Manitoba maple is known for the red shading running through it, and the artist has cleverly highlighted that natural feature with her placement of the moose and the flora and fauna. Hanna's work is detailed and unique, and she is becoming known for her whimsical treatment of Canadian wildlife. This is truly one-of-a-kind. Sit this extraordinary work on a coffee table or console to enjoy this piece of three dimensional art.
Ink, pencil and watercolour pencil on maple. 14" x 10" x 4"
The Artist: Hanna Mark is a watercolour and mixed media painter, who is currently enrolled in Graphic Design at York University and Sheridan College. Hanna has loved art since she was a little girl. She won the art award in elementary school, and then, after working diligently in her high school’s enriched art program, she also won the art award at the grade 12 graduation. Having grown up in Canada’s north country and on a farm, it isn’t surprising that her work reflects her daily experiences with the domestic and wild animals of Canada. Hanna melds the skills of visual art and graphic design in both her design work and in the painting she creates for exhibitions and art shows. She has been involved in multiple shows as an emerging artist and most recently has shown her paintings on studio tours and at galleries. She continues to hone her skills as she creates the whimsical and detailed cast of animal characters in her current work.
