Douglas Edwards

“Building on an early reputation as a portrait artist, Douglas Edwards has established an acclaimed ability to forge striking images based on familiar scenes. His treatment of water and of clouds has attracted particular attention from critics and other artists. People familiar with his work have often been heard to exclaim, after looking upwards: “Look, a Doug Edwards sky!”  Nonetheless, each work is completely different from the next, and each evokes a unique reaction or emotion.


In the course of his career, Douglas has experimented with various schools of art, but his work resists classification.


Douglas has exhibited in locations as diverse as Japan, Sweden, Florence and New York City, and many of his works are to be found in international collections. Yet his subject-matter continues to be focused in central Canada, which he feels holds as much potential for creative expression as anywhere in the world.


Though his larger canvasses command good prices, Doug also makes a point of producing a range of more affordable pieces suitable for smaller spaces.
