About the Artist

Untitled Document

Maureen Enns of the Ghost River Valley, Alberta, Canada is not your ordinary artist. Not many artists have travelled to the Russian Far East, Africa and India to raise the awareness of peaceful co-existence between wild animals and humans. Not many artists have spent their lifetime fighting for elephants, grizzly bears and now wild horses on a constant basis. Maureen Enns is more than just an artist. She is a naturalist. She is a conservationist. She is a risk taker. She is a social activist. She is a philanthropist. Her work has caught the attention of the CBC, PBS, and the Los Angeles Times. Maureen has come to one consistent conclusion. Many wild animals on a global scale have simply been just misunderstood.

Some of Maureen’s greatest accomplishments as an artist, include living with the grizzlies as long as she did in Kamchatka and being part of the program, Walking With Giants, which has been shown many times on PBS. She recently starred in the Pyramid Productions film titled Wild Horses of the Rockies which has been one of the most popular of Animal Planet. She has co-authored three books which include the best sellers published by Random House, Grizzly Heart and Grizzly Seasons. Her art exhibition career spans over 30 years nationally and internationally. She had the first solo contemporary art exhibition in Moscow after Perestroika.

Maureen is currently completing her new book “Wolves and Wild Horses – as studied in a micro wilderness east of the Canadian Rockies”. It is targeted to be released by Rocky Mountain Books in June 2013
