About the Artist
A lifelong passion for the beauty of nature and photography has in his retirement years led Graham to the magical world of watercolour.
His paintings are inspired by his own original photographs taken locally and during his travels across Europe and Canada.
In the beautiful Kawartha Lakes Region, where he makes his home, Graham paints his favourite topics: local landscapes, delicate florals, old farm buildings, wildlife, waterscapes and reflections.
Living in England from 1959 - 1971, Graham used black and white photography as a means to express his love for nature. A natural evolvement for Graham was to colour photography from which he gravitated to his most recent and enduring love - watercolours.
Graham first studied water colour at Durham College. During the past ten years he has studied and painted with several fine artists including the famous American Watercolour artist Zoltan Zebo
Watercolours provide Graham with the perfect medium to express how he experiences the world around him.
"I have discovered watercolour to be a luminous and exiting medium for expressing my passion and appreciation for all the beauty, joy and peace I am blessed with in my life. It is my sincere desire to bring these same qualities to the viewer through my artistic impressions".
Several of Graham's paintings have been awarded prizes in local juried shows and many of his works hang in private collections in Canada, USA and Europe.Click on each photo at the top to view a larger photo.
