Original painting titled "Pointing the way to the Potlatch"
Rare opportunity to add an amazing unique original oil painting by highly regarded elder Coast Salish artist Janice Morin. This original painting was inspired from a dream she had last year, she said "this dream just stuck with me for some time and I felt compelled to paint it!"
Born in Merrit B.C. in 1952, of Salish/Cree parents. Janice and her family moved to Vancouver during teenage years and to her great fortune into the same native Co-op building as the legendary master carver Oppie Oppenheim. He quickly took her into apprenticeship after seeing her original designs and over the course of three years became adept at carving both wood and jewelry. Her artistic career gave way to her devotion of her two children for fifteen years. The second great artistic influence came into her life at this point in the person of her husband and internationally renowned Coast Salish artist Randy Stiglitz. Hand in hand their artist careers have flourished with each being a strong and steadying influence in the other.
