Marilyn Matis

Marilyn Matis was born and raised in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. She spent her childhood hiking and learning about nature along with her family. They spent a lot of time at local conservation areas. She had a variety of small cameras and loved to take pictures. Eventually she and her husband settled in Caledon and raised a family of four children. She began taking pictures of birds in the backyard and on hikes in the area. Eventually she purchased a better camera and began posting her pictures on Facebook and Instagram.
