E. Robert Ross – Artist Biography

"I have always enjoyed being outdoors; for hikes in local conservation areas, to wilderness adventures such as mountaineering, or canoe tripping. One is reminded that we, as humans, are a part of nature; and can learn from studying the natural world. This is the central theme of my artwork.

An early interest in the work of landscape photographers led me to a realistic style of painting, in acrylics. However, the most important part of painting landscapes, for me, is the symbolism of the elements, and the association one can imagine from the depiction of the scenes. I always hope to suggest "going beyond" the landscapes. It is the underlying spirit of nature that ties the landscape together with our human existence."

She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
