Drake resident Linda Renaud was always an artist, but when she was diagnosed with cancer eight years ago, she used the long chemotherapy sessions to hone her painting skills. It paid off. Her intricate paintings tell a story of the interactions amongst wildlife. “I hope to show the dignity and the strength as well as the fragility of these wonderful animals,” she says.
