Patricia Canelake, Northern Minnesota
Patricia Canelake participated in the first year of Sleeping Bear Dunes Artists-in-Residency program. Instead of staying in a modular home as originally planned, she lived in a tent. "It was cold," Canelake says, "I was outside for three weeks, but I loved it. I had the sand dunes and Lake Michigan right in back of my tent. I'd pick wild apples and bake them over my fire at night or roast vegetables from a roadside stand. I became kind of primitive."
