Frank Polson

Cultural Background: Algonquin, Long Point First Nations, QC

A Native North American Algonquin, born in Ville-Marie, Quebec in 1952, Frank Polson is a member of the Long Point First Nation.

Frank is a self-taught artist who produces works of unique beauty that is both relevant to today and in accordance with his heritage. For the last few years he has worked at developing his unique style in the medium of acrylics. He has rekindled his fond memories of many pleasurable and educational seasons spent on the trap lines with his father and has tried to capture those wonderful memories on canvas. 

Frank credits the Elders for helping him find and maintain balance in his life, to overcome his problems and conflicts, and to live with and finally defeat the frustration that followed him for so many years. He finally knows that he can stop running and that he has nothing to prove to the world.
