GARTLAN, Sara – is an artist and aspiring craftswoman living in Toronto. She enjoys spending time moving through landscapes in canoes, kayaks, bicycles and motorbikes. The canoe being a fast favorite. In the last few years she has spent a fair amount of time being taught and teaching herself how to make and paddle small traditional boats.
