Athabasca Sand Dunes with Sandra Meigs
Series: Landscape as Muse
Self-described "Gothic painter," Sandra Meigs travels from her Victoria home to remote northwestern Saskatchewan's enigmatic Athabasca Sand Dunes. Spanning almost 2,000 square kilometres, the isolated Dunes are Canada's largest active sand surface -- and the most northerly active dunes on Earth. These Dunes are home to at least nine species of plants not found anywhere else in the world. Back at her studio, Meigs completes a very large painting featuring an imaginary sand dune creature, inspired by the journey.
