The artwork of Estella Hartt (1876-1967),Brad Hartt brought a 20" x 25" pen-and-ink drawing by Estella M. Hartt of a scene in the woods where some wolves had just killed a buck (hart). In 1945, Estella went to visit her friend, Mae Whitehead, at the Prairie Bible Institute in Three Hills, Alberta. When she heard that there was a Hartt family at the Institute, she went to meet them, and found that David Roy Hartt was indeed related to her. After she returned to her home near Arrow Park, B.C., she sent them that drawing of the animals. Estella raised ginseng on her little farm near Upper Arrow Lake in order to supplement her income. Brad says that when his parents passed away, he inherited the drawing and has passed it on to his artist daughter, Carolyn Hartt, who has it in her home in Tacoma, Washington
