Artist Statement:
Doris Attwood (Bergman) had a varied career life. She taught mathematics at Mount Royal University and served in the Canadian military. I was honoured to be asked to paint her portrait as I saw echoes of my own life in hers: I have a strong affinity for mathematics and am the daughter of a Canadian serviceman.

Artist Bio:
Elana uses oversized images to create an intimacy between viewer and subject to remove preconceptions and show commonalities. She paints in the academic tradition and has studied with Izabella Orzelski-Konikowski and at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto. Her work is found in collections around the world.
