THERMEA BY NORDIK SPA
Built on Sensory stimulation, the Thermea experience takes you to a place of restoration and relaxation. The Nordik Oasis Spa is the largest spa in Canada.
The Thermea Encaustic Series was created from more of a memory than a representation. I was greatly honored when asked to create work that represented the nature of my native Province. It was such a beautiful process watching the banks of the Iconic Red River flow from within me. Water creates an undeniable feeling of nostalgia, which was so fitting for this spa.
This body of work can be seen at Thermea from January 2015 to January 2016 and then will be moved into private art collection.
