    Forest Raven Art Studio

    Details :

    Rigmor Clarke was born in Sweden in 1935. She now lives and works out of her home and studio in Shell Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada. However, her home in Shell Lake might better be described as a base camp from which she travels into the northern Saskatchewan wilderness to create her impressionistic paintings of the Canadian landscape. Clarke has invented a unique system for transporting her wet canvases via canoe, and stays out on the land (and the water) for seven to ten days, traveling and painting mostly alone.

    Address : located at Echo Bay
    on Big Shell Lake,
    West of Prince Albert
    Details :

    Studio Nine – Located on the shore line of Echo Bay on Big Shell Lake) exhibits the artistic ability of Opal & Stan Cameron.
    Opal has always been interested in and loves the challenge of creating. She likes to carve, do ceramics, work with clay and sew. However, she truly enjoys painting – particularly with oils or pastels. Opal’s works include portraits, wild life, landscapes or whatever catches her eye.
    Opal was raised on a farm and spent most of her working life as a teacher counselor in various locations in Saskatchewan. Moving to the lake has allowed her to return to nature and once again experience the peace and tranquility she depicts in her work.
    Stan also grew up on a farm. He has a natural love and talent for working with wood and metal. Stan is an inventor and builds furniture, but his true work reflects in his beautiful wood work on the lath and scroll saw.
    After working many years in union, government and private businesses, he is now able to spend more time using his creative abilities as depicted in the dimensional intarsia you will view when visiting this studio during the Thickwood Hills Studio Trail Tour ( held in mid August, annually) or by viewing appointment.
