Known best for her intense insight into the wild beauty of the Haliburton Highlands and her ability to communicate the spirit of the forests onto canvas, Ethel Curry was known by all to be strong, free and true, both in her work and in her relationships with others.
Born in 1902 in a little log cabin nestled in the heart of the Highlands, Ethel Curry was the first born in a family of three. She was certainly not the only to harbor enterprising ambitions. A descendant of generations of exploring timber men, Ethel had been preceded by a history of creative endeavors and strong independent minds. She is best known by her admirers for her stunning paintings. However for those who knew her well there were many other dimensions that built the substance of Ethel Curry.
