Amazing Stories: Emily Carr by Cat Klerks


Amazing Stories: Emily Carr by Cat Klerks is printed by Heritage Distribution Group, a Canadian company.

“With her eccentric clothes, her brusque manners, and her menagerie of unusual pets, Emily Carr made a strange figure in her hometown of Victoria, a place ‘more English than the English’. But despite numerous setbacks and the disapproval of family and society, Emily would prove to be a woman ahead of her time. From her adventures in the art schools of London and Paris to her gradual development as Canada’s most renowned landscape painters, Emily’s story is a testament to individuality and the human spirit.”

Cat Klerks has a degree in English from McGill University and a lifelong fascination with Canadian art. She currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.
