The Journey Home Collection

The Journey Home Collection


Arriving January 2022, The Journey Home Panel created by Karen Erickson.

"In light of the recent traumatic events that have unfolded at former Residential Schools across Canada, Karen Erickson created 'Every Child Matters' out of reverence to those grieving. This painting depicts two siblings who were finally set free after being grimly discovered at a Residential School.

The children who are shown holding hands were torn apart from each other,  but now reunited as they make their way back home. Karen included beautiful imagery such as a moon and feathers to represent the First Nations, Inuit and Metis people joining together to guide the two siblings home.

100% of the net proceeds from the sales of the panel from 'The Journey Home' will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society and the Orange Shirt Society. For more information on these charities, please visit and"

What a beautiful panel to honor the aboriginals for their loss. It is hard to imagine how your soul would shrink and how your mind would be altered for life to know that your children were taken away and never to be seen or heard from for the rest of your life! As a mother of 3, I feel their pain in the depth of my heart.
