Art in Public Places


Fergus Botanical Artist

   I have a fundamental interest in plant and animal life, drawing much of my influence from nature. I tend to look within nature to find refuge, rather than seek shelter from it. My work channels the consideration of this relationship, in particular the need to find protection and a sense of connection.
In 2020 I was inspired during the gloomy beginnings of the Pandemic, when a dandelion emerged in my garden. The vibrant colour, new growth, and perseverance of the mighty Dandelion was a welcome sign of hope.
This series of work is reflective of my observations of the vibrancy of plant life during a period of such uncertainty.
Anita Granger was born in Toronto and grew up in a small town just north of the city. She holds a B.F.A. Spec. Hons. from York University with a double specialization in Visual Art and Graphic Design. She recently completed her Certificate in Botanical Illustration (with Distinction) at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, U.K.
Anita’s work can be found at the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s AGH Art Rental and Sales, as well as at INSIGHTS  at the Centre Wellington Museum and Archives until June 19th.
