PERRY HADDOCK- SFCA
Perry Haddock is a Canadian artist from the south coast of British Columbia, near Vancouver. His paintings reveal his West Coast roots and his love of the coastal images near his home. Painting primarily in acrylic and watercolour, Perry's impressionistic style is the result of his keen observation of the colours and textures of nature, and his efforts to record his impressions in broad strokes. Many of his paintings are developed from sketches or studies done on site, and his fondest painting experiences are those en plein air.
Now retired from a career as a fine arts teacher and school counsellor, Perry has taken the opportunity to add travelling to his agenda, and has discovered new subjects and experiences to add to his palette, ranging from Italian coastal bays to Paris rooftops and Newfoundland meadows.
Perry is a Senior Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA), and is an active member of Landscape Artists International and the B.C. Art Teachers' Association.
“For me, art is simply a way of expressing mood. Whether I paint or sing or play a tuba, I’m expressing my personal reaction to my world at a given moment, so I want my paintings to reveal something of my emotion and my personality to those who see them.”
