Stuart Godfrey has enjoyed a successful career as an illustrator in the Toronto advertising scene. In the last few years he’s been transitioning more to the fine arts and discovering his love for painting.
“I’ve been drawing digitally for the last 25 years so it’s nice to get the hands dirty again. I’d call myself a traditional, representational, landscape painter who enjoys both plein-air painting and studio work. I paint predominately in oils, however I’m also passionate about my travel sketchbooks and fill them with ink and gouache watercolour studies”.
Born in Vancouver but residing in the Toronto area for most of his life, Godfrey is also drawn to the rugged beauty of his mother’s birthplace of Newfoundland where he spent summers as a young boy sketching the small fishing outports around St John’s. “I think I’m just discovering now what impact my early years spent in Newfoundland have on my painting direction in this stage of my life”.
