David is a lifelong student of creativity, continually exploring new forms of expression in design, colour and light. A graduate of the H. B. Beal Special Art program, David has combined a career as a Creative Director in advertising with many other interests including painting, photography, writing, woodworking and sailing.
Raised on a southwestern Ontario farm, David continues to enjoy growing things and interacting with the natural environment… animals, gardening, the landscape and the constantly changing weather of the Grand Bend shoreline. These subjects are a constant part of his life and work.
David’s paintings have twice been Best in Show winners of Paint the Huron Shores, the predecessor of Paint Ontario. His work has been featured in many publications and is represented in collections around the world.
