ARTIST: David Grieve

BIOGRAPHY: David Grieve has been painting with oils for most of his life. He was introduced to the medium at a young age while accompanying his mother to her studio. David attended the University of Guelph where he received the Micheal Scotchmere scholarship. He has been exhibiting his work for 16 years, and has developed a unique, distinctive style.David often finds himself lost while trying to navigate a route towards a destination. He frequently drives through the ever changing fields in Southern Ontario. He takes photos along the way and then uses these images to produce his paintings. With a multi-layered technique, he applies thick swaths of oil paint, creating a translation of these moments.

David has received scholarships and awards for his paintings, and has been involved in numerous group and solo exhibitions in commercial as well as public galleries across Canada and the U.S.A. David is represented by Natures Scene and currently exhibits in 17 galleries.

David lives surrounded by the fields in Brantford Ontario with his wife and three sons. They also spend time at the studio/cabin in North Kawartha

ARTIST: Heather Hawley

RESIDES: Alberta

BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION

 

STYLE

 Heather works exclusively in oils in a realistic style. She is known for her careful attention to detail and accurate depiction of the subjects she paints. She usually paints on oil-primed linen panels or stretched canvas, and her paintings are of archival quality. 

 

INSPIRATION

 Heather lives on an acreage in Alberta, Canada and has spent a lot of time in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. She has always had a deep love for nature, animals, and the western landscape. That passion remains with her to this day and is often reflected in her art. Living on an acreage, she enjoys being surrounded by nature and has a wonderful, spacious studio which also provides a lot of inspiration for painting. It has a high, vaulted ceiling and an oversized screened garage door so she can enjoy the sensation of painting “almost outdoors” in the summer months!

 

“What draws me to a particular image is usually dramatic lighting or colour or, in the case of animals, a scene that shows the character or typical behaviour of an animal. I am also particularly drawn to scenes that show water reflections, regardless of subject matter. I find that images with one or more of these elements have the biggest emotional impact on me as the artist, and those are the ones I choose to paint. I will consider the painting a success if I have executed it to the best of my ability and the viewer ultimately has the same emotional reaction to the painting as I did when I first chose that particular image to paint!”

 

MEMBERSHIPS/COLLECTORS

 Heather is an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) and is also a member of the Edmonton Chapter of the FCA. Her work is owned by collectors in Canada and internationally.

Pig Pen
by Heather Hawley
"I really enjoy painting pigs – there is just something about them that appeals to me, and I am often drawn to the smiles they frequently seem to have on their faces (they are, after all, very clever creatures)! This pig looks quite pleased with himself to be so dirty after an afternoon of play – he reminds me of a few of our dogs (or perhaps even children?) who behaved the very same way. The dirtier the better! I can almost imagine him thinking how very handsome he looks!"
