Rutka – Themes

Our work reflects the images and impressions of our experiences in Northern Canada. Robert is no stranger to the north, being born in Churchill, Manitoba. Jean comes from an urban environment, and was born in London, England. Together we have canoed and camped along many of the northern rivers and lakes. Our work uses several different materials, such as stone, metal, ceramic clay, and fibres.
