Northern Brights

Boxes are approx. 2.5" x 3.5" x 1.75"
Sylvia Grantins grew up in the lush woods of rural Ontario, just outside the boundaries of Algonquin Park. As the daughter of two artists, she drew and painted at an early age. When an opportunity to go tree planting in the wilds of northern Ontario arose, she eagerly accepted, and eventually moved there. Work days find her making the long commute from the bedroom to the kitchen table where the blank canvasses (and her clothes) are soon covered in bright dabs and waves, and spirals of bright colours. All of her scenes are inspired by real-life places, with a bit of imagination.

We offer small boxes with Sylvia's original paintings attached to the lids. The underside of each lid is signed by the artist. $32 each.
