Herschel Payne

Recognized internationally, Herschel Payne has been artist-in-residence for Bonnechere Provincial Parks since 1995, and has come to call this river valley his artistic home. The artist has created a legacy by painting the special qualities of our area, and as an ambassador of the region through the many art workshops he teaches in Ottawa, Bonnechere and Algonquin Parks, and Pukaskwa National Park of Canada.

In recognition of the artist’s dedication to the Bonnechere-Algonquin region, the FBP named in his honour a walking trail that travels through both parks; Payne’s Pine Trail is featured in Walks of the Little Bonnechere. Herschel Payne is also artist-in-residence for Pukwaskwa National Park of Canada, and The Taylor Statten Camp at Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park.
