The Ann Timmins mural at the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada

"...A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Ann was born in Ringwood, England, in 1952, the daughter of the late Oliver “Tiger” and Sheila (McHardy) Timmins.

Ann graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1977, the Ontario College of Art in 1981, and the College of Geographic Sciences in 1986.

As a passionate and vibrant artist working with textiles and acrylic paints, she had a huge impact on the art community in northern and western Canada.

A Yellowknife resident for many years, Ann’s legacy lives on through murals she painted on the side of the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool and Diamond Plaza building...."

Director Biography - George Lessard

With a background in community access media and media training, I’ve worked in print, broadcast radio and television and in educational media. I consider myself an artist in electronic and digital media.
Born and brought up in Montreal, in Canada, my work has taken me to Toronto, Vancouver, Banff and Calgary; Inuvik, Fort Smith and Yellowknife NWT (where I currently live); Salluit, Nunavik (Arctic Quebec) and Arviat, Nunavut.
I’ve been posted internationally to Beijing, China; Nassau, the Bahamas; La Paz, Bolivia; Butare, Rwanda; Chelyabinsk, Russia; Berhampur, Odisha, India and the Peruvian Amazon.
These days in Yellowknife, I’m producing live webcasts and YouTube videos of community events and blogging about Canada’s Arctic.
