Artist Biography

Following nearly a decade of working as a naturalist in Algonquin Park, Peter Mills set out to convey Algonquin Park's many landscapes, moods, plants, and animals in paint. What followed was an ongoing journey to depict lakes, clouds, rivers, leaves, rocks, moose, turtles, and dragonflies—all with the greater aim to combine truthful colours and realistic scenes with a lyrical handling that conveys his mood and perceptions of this landscape.
