About the Artwork

The larches are changing colour, the beavers are maintaining their dams, building wetlands, and slowly, more people are beginning to understand that beaver dams gather water that nourishes and sustains a diverse, healthy ecosystem. As the wildfires scour our hillsides this summer in BC, those moist, low lying collections of the spring runoff are fire breaks, cooling interruptions in overheated forests and small shelters to scattered wildlife on the run.
Using recycled paper from old calendars, magazines and discarded or donated books, I build landscapes of wildernesses that, I hope, invite the viewer to explore, reflect upon, respect and love, as I do. It is a way to honour my First Nations heritage and remind others that we are part of this complicated and interconnected network of life.

Katherine MacNeill is a paper collage artist using recycled paper to build wilderness landscapes that are inspired by her travels in the Pacific Northwest. She seeks to capture a sustainable environment that will be there for future generations.

"I derive so much energy and joy from our natural chaotic and effusive environment and want future generations to have that same resource. I also love building my collages!"
