The self-taught Beausoleil First Nation artist, William Anthony Monague, grew up on an isolated island with no access to formal education or training in the arts. Monague donates his time and artwork to many worthwhile causes, while helping others. “I feel my art speaks to my culture. I have made a name for myself with my work and reputation but it has taken a long time.” After 45 years of painting, he continues his artistic lifelong journey with his family.
