Anita Utas is inspired by the natural world - landscapes, skies, animals. The gallery recently (March 2021) hosted a wildlife benefit show of her beautiful animal portraits, and we are very pleased to continue to offer them to you.

"I am in awe of animals' mystery and beauty. They make our lives more magical, mystical. They act as a bridge between civilization and nature. They teach us to observe, to slow down, listen and watch." - anita utas

Their gaze draws us in - the playful look of a baby otter, the wary look of a coyote, the gentle glance of a bear. Over the past few decades, however, wildlife species in Canada have become dramatically less abundant. A portion of the sale of these artworks will be donated to wildlife conservation organizations. Your purchase of one of these remarkable portraits - for yourself or as a gift for someone special - will support our local wildlife.
