Members of the Bruce Peninsula Society of Artists designed and painted a mural located in the heart of Lion's Head. The mural depicts both historical ​aspects as well as the town's beautiful scenery.  The Lion's Head mural is located west of Main St. Behind Mary Dale's Restaurant. 

The Lion's Head 100 Commitee jointly with the Lion's Head Promotions group commisioned the talented Jennifer Crawley to paint 4 town murals located around town. They are in three locations.  One (lighthouse is on the ) east side of the marina building 2) on the west side of the beach pavilion 3) the remaining 2 are one the north side of Scott's Home Hardware.

Jennifer Crawley was born in Victoria, British Columbia.

"As a kid I was always drawing; people, cartoons, any image that would catch my eye I would draw. I used to watch my mom reproduce paintings and decorate the house with them. She would paint all of the Masters; Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Renoir, Degas, Picasso, Modigliani and others.

I remember painting a couple of  paintings when I was 9 yrs old and not really being into it; I loved drawing. 

Then when I was 10 I started graphing in my mom's paintings for her and loosely drawing in the images.

When I was 21 I saw some painting realism that blew my mind and I wanted to copy it. So I did and absolutely fell in love with the entire process of painting. I paint my own images now usually, unless something catches my eye or I'm commissioned to do otherwise."

Jennifer currently lives in Toronto and is planning to travel next year. " I am really looking forward to painting scenes and people from other parts of the world". 

Jennifer lived on the Peninsula for a period of time and returns whenever she can to recharge.
