Adriene Veninger

Adriene Veninger is a visual artist working in mediums ranging from photography, drawing and painting.
A preoccupation with the natural world has driven the themes of her work for over thirty years.
Her works are in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada and toured in an exhibition titled
Flora and Fauna;   400 Years of Artists Inspired by Nature

The most recent works take as their subject avian specimens from the collections of Natural History Museums.

Working with the remains of of once living creatures proved to be a powerful experience and necessitated the creation of works that serve to eulogize them and their spirit.
