Peter Migwans is a painter in the woodland style. He began drawing when he was a miner in Wawa where he would draw images on the dusty windows and have his workmates guess what the image was. In addition to a lifetime of painting Peter has long served as an elder to the Anishnaabe community in Sault Ste. Marie.
