Although Benjamin Chee Chee died a tragic death, this Canadian artist of Ojibwa descent left behind a wonderful legacy of beautiful art.
He was born on the Temagami Reserve in Northern Ontario, Canada in 1944 and was a self taught artist.
I discovered his art a number of years ago in Montreal. His simple art had an intense emotional energy to it.
His gentle art taught me more about the art of wise parenting than most books out there.
I hope his work inspires you too. Share your loves – you’ll never know whose hearts you’ll touch.
Wishing you well and simple joys in your everyday.
