Searching to be different to express his heritage, Hudson often refers to the Swampy Cree Tribe and has lived in many regions of Canada. An avid traveller, Hudson is not easily contacted when out in the bush where he lives and thrives to be. He loves to spend time where he is most comfortable, painting in his cabin by a river surrounded by beauty, illustrating moments in time, and highlighting truth.
His debut with ILMC.ca represents four years of slowly achieving a collection of paintings that will assist in educating people from all walks of life and remind them that we are only here for a very short time.
“The footprint we leave will reflect on each one of us”, says Hudson.
“My greatest achievement has yet to be fulfilled”, he believes.
Hudson has been painting for nearly 40 years. Starting as a youth, he learned to manipulate a pencil to achieve superior blending and define lines. He has easily extended his talent and developed his Low Woodland technique. Inspired by artists such as Benjamin Chee Chee, Jon Fox, Norval Morrisseau and others, he has developed artistic techniques. The Woodland technique has grown to be his preferred approach for expressing images that deliver significant messages about the environment, Mother Earth and our very existence.
Hudson will continue to work with ILMC.ca whenever he is inspired to create other collections to further the truth as he sees it. Images that convey culture and tradition are always at the forefront of his art and creating mind-shaping images to share his belief is paramount.
Hudson has asked anyone wanting to connect with him to forward emails to his long-time friend – John Kor – through www.ILMC.ca.
“I might see you soon”, Hudson will say, especially when going into the bush.
