David Goatley's Bio and Links:
David Goatley, SFCA
"When I think about what I do, every portrait seems like a fresh journey, a voyage of discovery, as I am privileged to explore the uniqueness of others. Portraits have absolutely nothing to do with vanity and everything to do with the value of each and every one of us. Dr Johnson said: ‘ portrait painting is a reasonable and natural consequence of affection’ I can only agree - and who is not worthy of being recorded in that spirit?"
His portraits of Prime Minister Kim Campbell and Speaker Gilbert Parent hang on Parliament Hill, Lt Governors Iona Campagnolo and James Dunsmuir were painted for Government House, his work is in private and corporate collections across Canada and in 21 US states. With over 300 commissioned portraits completed in the past 20 years, David is often asked - what else do you paint?
He has always liked to travel and to paint what he finds when his portrait schedule allows. At Morris Gallery you will find images of London, India and the fields of Kent. Landscapes, townscapes and people pictures from Canada to Karnataka. Recollections of people he has met and places he has seen in paintings and drawings collected over the past decade.
