Fanny Bay artist Judi Wild holds a fascination for the legends and beliefs of the Coastal First Nations and a deep respect for the environment.

These values are evident in her work The Guardian of the Spirit Bear, a piece that depicts the rare white Kermode bear in its natural environment, protected by the legends of our First Peoples.

Wild uses a limited palette and a labour-intensive dry-brush technique for her work.

The Guardian of the Spirit Bear took over 600 hours to complete. Her images have remarkable depth to them, so much so that it is hard to believe that the artist is working on a flat surface.

Judi also enjoys giving back to the community through her art work. In partnership with the Baynes Sound Lions and the Comox Valley Child Development Association, she has launched a project to support children with extra needs and their families.

Between now and the annual Children’s Telethon the first Sunday in November, Wild will donate 100 per cent of the proceeds from every sale of a print of The Guardian of the Spirit Bear to the Child Development Association.

The prints are available for $200 each and can be purchased by going either to Wild’s website http://www.judiwildartist.com/ or www.cvcda.ca
