My name is Aquila Brown, born and raised in Manitoba. For the past 4 years I live in Morden, Manitoba with my husband, Wade and our recently adopted a dog, Arctic Luna. I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. It brings so much joy to paint and sell custom paintings to various people around Manitoba. My favourite type of art is acrylic on canvass. I have been doing this on and off for 5 years. Recently, I haven’t had the time to create. Once I was shown this opportunity to paint on this replica skull of the Mosasaurus, I thought it would be an amazing way to express art.
I call my skull “Luna” after, my dog, Artic. I painted it with different tons of blues to show dimension and the natural texture of the skull. This was an aquatic mammal, the reason behind the blue is what I think it would look like underwater.
