Long Description:
This mural deals with wildlife and their habitat, primarily Caribou of the high country and their neighbours. The scene could be nearby in the Cariboo, anywhere the mountains hold snow for part of the year.

Most of the murals in Quesnel have been the work of local artist Leigh Cassidy. Though this mural isn't signed, we have discovered that this particular mural was not the work of Leigh Cassidy, but another Quesnel artist, Maureen Wheeler, who has done more than one mural in the city.

Maureen Wheeler is a Quesnel artist working primarily in acrylics. She has been drawing and painting most of her life. Working for the city, she has done mural restorations and completed a large outdoor mural depicting the endangered Mountain Caribou. She designed “Sockeye Run at Likely” which was chosen to be made into the banner that hangs on light standards around the city. The Pacific Salmon Foundation also bought prints of the work, which depicts sockeye salmon in their spawning cycle, to auction at their various functions around BC. Maureen is a member of the Quesnel Art Gallery, and a regular participant in the annual August Art in the Market.
