Artist and writer Kathy Toivonen finds inspiration for creativity from nature, culture, and history; and she often combines her interests to develop projects. For example, she has produced a series of hand drawn maps of historical and cultural interest in Northwestern Ontario that are embellished with raw charcoal drawings. With a background in graphic arts, Kathy uses bits of nature to enhance paintings and drawings to add depth and dimension. Her Finnish background and connection to nature, and her interest in culture and history often overlap in her books and articles. Kathy lives with her family in a rural setting west of Thunder Bay, where she keeps an eye open for signs of Big Foot.
