Artist’s Bio:

Sanderson, a self taught Métis artist from the Thebacha, NT, grew up on his grandmother’s trap line from the time he was a baby. He began drawing early in childhood, eventually transitioning to painting landscapes from the area he lives by. Mother Nature has been the main inspiration for his works and style. depicting sunsets and moon pieces from photos he, or a friend, has taken is one of his favorite ways to lay down his work on canvas. Sanderson is currently using acrylics as his medium of choice. He has taught art to youth through summer student employment in the past years with the Métis Council and other leading organizations.
