HARVEY J WALKER
My goal is to connect to the viewer through painted images that capture the eye and move the spirit. I work with oils and focus on capturing the peace, spirit, and hidden power of ever changing landscapes.
I started painting over thirty years ago and participated in local shows with a group of artists who met regularly at my home. Over the years, self-employment as a furniture and kitchen designer has kept my observation and design skills keen, my creations were three dimensional but painting was reserved for scarce spare time. In 2010, I re-connected to painting and the results showed quickly, wining the "Peoples Choice Award" at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery in Minden. Since then I have participated in juried, solo and group shows as well as the Scugog Studio Tour in May and the Tour de Forest in Haliburton.
Boathouse studio is in Carnarvon, ON in Haliburton County and I can often can be found en plein air painting the rugged beauty found there. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my love for painting by teaching at Meta 4 Gallery in Port Perry and Peterborough, and at the Boathouse Studio.
