Norman Knott, known as White Bear, was an Ojibway artist who was born at the Curve Lake Reserve, north of Peterborough, Ontario. Knott spent his entire life in this small and quiet community with his wife and three children

Knott’s work has a unique style that reflected his love of nature, symbolic motifs and spiritual representations of wildlife. While the majority of his work was done in acrylic, he also worked with oils and watercolour.

Recognized as one of the most prolific Ojibway artists, Knott’s works were purchased by collectors including Queen Elizabeth II, Pierre Trudeau, Lee Trevino and Johnny Cash.
