Portait Artists in Newfoundland & Labrador

These Canadian artists create their own original portraiture capturing likenesses and interpreting the essence of the subject. Many of the artists listed may be approached to create portraits on commission. Their work might include family, friends, pets, or just an interesting face.

My goal is to transform my passion and love for my home province into a tribute of the places and people I have encountered over the years. I attempt to pour my memories and experiences onto canvas and paper, in my own vibrant and colourful version of Newfoundland. My joy, is not when people ‘like’ my art, but when people share with me how my art inspires them to feel, or to remember something special.

My art satisfies a sense of ‘Home’. It makes people remember times gone by and people they have lost. I have heard so many people say “This reminds me of Nan’s house’ or, ‘My Grandfather was Captain on that boat’ or ‘This makes me feel…”, and ‘This reminds me of the time when…’ Younger people seem (especially) seems to appreciate the bright and vibrant colour of my art. They tell me it’s a contemporary version of Newfoundland art. I often hear my art is ‘different’ from most other art out there. The ‘different’ and fresh look at our province seems to make most people fall in love with my work. It reminds them of the Artwork they grew up with in Mom and Dad’s house, but is updated and fits into the younger peoples lifestyle and home designs.

I invite you to come with me, into coves, communities and cities, as we see the province and people of Newfoundland, through my eyes.
