My mission is to create a lasting impression that inspires viewers and honours tradition.
My work focuses on the beauty and spirit of the Indigenous cultures, and their stories. I strive to capture the essence of not just visual beauty, but the heart and soul of the subjects and their stories. My brush strokes seek to create a connection between the viewer and the subject, and to bring to life the beauty and spirit of the people in my paintings.
Victor Pelletier was an Anishinaabe from Serpent River First Nation, Ontario. He was born on July 31, 1929 at the Blind River hospital, the fifth of eight children, and attended school in Sudbury.
I believe it is very important to give back and for that reason I have committed 10% of all sales of my original paintings and prints of my indigenous portraits to the Dwight and Christine Powless Scholorship.
