Biography

B.G. David

 

Born in Ontario, I grew up in Petawawa and spent my time between the Ottawa River and Algonquin Park.

 

Later, living in Toronto, I found myself travelling back “home” and to the Bancroft and Peterborough areas on weekends. I walked the woods and spent time on the many lakes in the area.

 

As a child, time spent with my grandfather learning to identify trees, plants and animals nurtured my love of all things outdoors in the bush.

 

I moved to B.C. more than 30 years ago and frequently travel to Alberta.  The mountains, trees, rocks and rivers bring me great joy and these I paint.

 

I have been commissioned to paint pets and special pieces. My works hang in B.C., AB, and the USA with several awards received in Alberta.

 

I work in acrylic, oil, encaustic and watercolor.  Every piece brings me not only great pleasure but new learning experiences.
