Description Watkins's practice has been largely centered on recording the changes in Mississauga's rural and urban landscape since moving to Mississauga nearly half-a-century ago. The growth of Mississauga from a small collection of towns and villages to one of Canada's largest municipalities can be seen throughout Watkin's work which features numerous iconic buildings and scenes of the city.
