About Fuzzy Beast Art Studio

I am an elected member of the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) and the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA). I would like to think that if the Group of Seven were around we would all go out into the woods to paint together since they were founding members of the OSA. It’s an honour to follow in their footsteps.

My studio is nestled in the woods in the Town of the Blue Mountains, about 2 hours north of Toronto. It’s the best place to create work; on any given day I may see a deer poke its face through the ferns, or a fox trot by or a bald eagle soar overhead.

Why Fuzzy Beast? It’s really the boss of the studio, my 5 lb Morkie. He is my most passionate fan!
