Queen of the Canadian Highways Guest Lorrie Fleming E014

November 29, 2021

As Michelle and Lorrie discuss their passion for highway culture and the knowledge that our roots are steeped by the ones who have passed before us.  Pour a cup of tea and see the road, hear the art on this episode of AR:T Route Radio.

Lorrie states, "the world is brilliantly coloured by Michelle's motivation and her believing in me and the power of purpose of a multi-generational society that's strengthened by the foundation of which only our elders can convey.

Here's to Art Route Blue weaved into a multi-coloured security blanket keeping us warm & thriving in a circle of hope … as we rebuild our routes with roots. 


Lorrie Fleming - “My realization that 'age is a gift to humanity'!  I turned 70 in May and this milestone hangs heavily on my personal feeling of self-worth. But then I saw the gift. The wisdom that our elders carry to society is priceless.
