Oak Island Treasure

My painting of the Oak Island Treasure Hunt (above) was originally illustrated for The Weekly Reader, to accompany an article about the ongoing treasure hunt at Nova Scotia’s Oak Island. Since publication, this piece has garnished a good deal of attention from treasure hunters.  “The Money Pit” (as it is affectionately called) is considered the longest running treasure hunt in the world. I learned about the project through this illustration, and was flattered that my piece has started getting attention from followers of this legendary quest. Recently, I was contacted by a UK website called Oak Island Treasure, which wanted to feature my illustration on their site. Of course I was thrilled to add my piece to the collection of articles, news stories, archives, photos and video. It is probably as close to a treasure find that I will ever get!

Years later, I was contacted by Nimbus Publishing seeking permission to reprint the image in their book, Oak Island and the Search for Buried Treasure by Joann Hamilton-Barry.
