Dave is a Canadian artist who creates paintings that are heavily inspired by his family and the music that he enjoys while painting. His pieces are mainly abstract and non-objective lending themselves to be as interpretative as they are expressive.
Dave has always been an artist at heart. He became a professional photographer in 1993 and expanded his creative expression to painting in early March 2017.
The want/need to paint has been with Dave ever since he can remember but he didn’t take that first step until after receiving his first easel and acrylic paints for Christmas 2016 from his wife. After that there has been no looking back, blending the detail of photography with his admiration for the abstract.
Experimenting with acrylics, mediums, pigments etc has turned into a passion and with every painting new ideas and techniques have and will be implemented.
Dave has been honored to have his paintings hung in various galleries & Art Shows in the Okanagan including Lake Country ArtWalk 2018 & 2019, The Penticton Art Gallery, Front St. Gallery, Gallery 97 in Peachland and the new 3 Winds Gallery & Ferdinand Gallery in Keremeos. He has also had work hung and sold at The Federation of Canadian Artist's gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver.
Dave and his wife are residents of the Similkameen Valley, moving from the Lower Mainland and away from the bustle of the city in 2015 to a much quieter and less stressful way of life. He is a member of the South Similkameen Art Society, Oliver Community Arts Council, The Penticton Arts Council, is an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists and can be contacted via email at by phone @ 250 499 1222 or via his website at where there are many more of his paintings and photographs for show & sale.
