Virtual Exhibit: A Year of Musing and Contemplation by Renée Simard

Artist statement: “Just like many artists over centuries, I am fascinated and inspired by the natural world. An unglamorous little trampled leaf can be as striking as a grandiose landscape. I want to be a visual poet of what is often overlooked – the effects of time, seasons, decay and renewal.”
