Ernie Scoles. a member of the Barren Lands Indian Band, was born at Cumberland House, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1962,
and raised in northern Manitoba. There he developed a deep feeling for nature and wildlife, taking advantage of every
opportunity to explore the woods, lakes and streams.
Influenced by the late Isaac Bignell, his mentor and friend, Ernie's work in woodland imagery reflects his Cree
heritage and is found in collections throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.
In 1992, Ernie was awarded the Governor General's Canada 125 Medal for his contributions to his community.
As well, in 2002 Ernie was the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee Medal for his contributions.
He makes his home in Saskatoon with his wife Doreen, and has four children, Davian, Amanda, Cassandra and Kalen.
"When I am painting I have a great feeling of peace and harmony with nature and I feel a powerful connection
between our creator and all living things. In my work I try to capture the spiritual interaction of all life with the earth,
sun, wind, and sky. I always hope that at least one person will like the image I paint."
