Artists -> Maple Leith

I’m an artist, an athlete, an outdoorsman, an animal lover, a loyalist, a Canadian.

I'm a graduate of The University of Western Ontario. I have a degree in Fine Arts.

I’ve been called a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal by multiple woman. I’m a gentleman.

I admire Diego Velazquez, Andy Warhol and the Great Vincent van Gogh. I respect Velazquez. I love and hate Andy. I have a kinship with Vincent. I look up to Rembrandt, Michael Snow, Yves Klein, Franz Kline, Claude Monet, Mark Rothko, Lawren Harris, Tom Thomson, Emily Carr and the Group of 7. 

I’m from Kingston, Ontario. Home is U.W.O.. Home is The Zoo. Home is Toronto. Home is Ontario. Home is Alberta. Home is Shambhala. Home is Fernie, BC.

I'm genuine.

I create art about what I love. I love Canada. I love the life that has been given to me by my Grandparents when they immigrated here. I love our wildlife and the northern lights. I love colour. I am colourful, and live to be colourful. I can sit and look at the colours change in nature and be completely content.

All of the animals depicted in my work I have seen and photographed myself. I’m a painter of wild Canadian animals. I create original abstract and animal art for sale.
