Winner of the Picasso (Community Members, Post-Docs, and Principle Investigators) category at the 2014 Brain & Mental Health Art Show.

This work was inspired by Project Healing Waters, a program designed to heal and rehabilitate wounded Canadian and American war veterans by getting them out in nature, and teaching them to fly fish on some of North America’s beautiful lakes and streams. This painting represents our research on the relationship between the brain and behaviour in Kokanee salmon.
