About the Author
Sandra Of The Gardens ( Woodpecker Womin) BA Hon., B.Ed. I am a Metis woman of Ojibway, Cree and French descent. I am the granddaughter of a residential school survivor; this legacy has profoundly impacted and directed my life choices. I am mother of six children and a grandmother, all of whom have been my teachers. My journey of expressive arts began when I was five years old in my backyard sandbox. I am a visual artist and have been exhibiting my work since 1978. I am a teacher and have taught in a variety of settings always with an emphasis on using creativity as a catalyst for growth and change. I have facilitated expressive arts healing circles since 1999 and for the last 5 years have implemented Ancestral Call to Balances as an alternative recovery resource with individuals and groups. In the tradition of giving back what I have been given I share the struggles and gifts of my 28 years of recovery. Nominatee For The Ontario Arts Foundation Artist/Educator Award 2018...
