AQUILA BROWN

AQUILA BROWN
Morden, Manitoba

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.
