Lorne A. Julien, Warrior on the Hill

Lorne Alexander Julien, from Millbrook First Nation, Mi'kmaq First Nations, Nova Scotia, specializes in original First Nations acrylic paintings. His Mi'kmaq name is "Warrior on the Hill", given to him in his youth when he learned about the spiritual way of his people.

He is also a self-taught artist, beginning as a young child. He uses bright colours and believes simplicity is beautiful. He wants to share his art work, lifting people's spirits, with ideas taken from his visions and dreams.

Eagles are his favourite subject material as they are well respected among his people, with the ability to fly highest toward the Creator.
