Stop 5 – Sumack Loft
Auni has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil, and as a child spent all her time either drawing animals, outdoors trying to find and pick up as many creatures as she could, or with her head in a book… about animals.
Auni attended a school of Beaux-Arts in France as a youth and became a graphic designer and illustrator as a way to be able to make a living in a way that accesses her creativity.
She lives deep in the forests of Lanark County in a newly built hand-crafted log house, surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of the local flora and fauna, and is inspired by these to produce drawings and paintings that reflect that beauty.
Auni is working on a new series that reflects the idea that we humans are merely another species of animal, since she feels it’s important to the future of our planet that we remember our connection to this world of ours, and that we share it with many other animals who are no less or more valuable than we are.
She works primarily in graphite, watercolour, acrylic, and charcoal.
