Events and Highlights from over the years, and those still to come .

These photos span the period from the early 90’s to present day.  IceBear is what is called a Dreamer by his people, one to whom, as they say, ‘you can tell of your dreams, and he will draw you pictures in the sand’.

Ice Bear’s fine art has evolved over the past 30 years, from a graphic style that combined the forms and shapes of traditional Ojibway art, to a free flowing technique which provide richly toned paintings that can change colour and depth as sunlight moves, and day turns to night. His many years as art director, and over 5 years as muralist have given him a great interest in technique; how paint ‘works’, colour, brush-strokes, and layering, some IceBear paintings have close to 20 layers of paint and medium.
