As an architect Fraser Brinsmead has always been keenly aware of the incredible richness and vitality of city life. His paintings are home to people oblivious to being watched, people who play, work, and live in an urban context. They are familiar scenes into which the viewer might feel compelled to join in, hear the sounds, feel the crowd, breathe the smells and experience the light. Many works hint at a deeper story that will entice the viewer to elaborate, while others have layered themes that reflect the complexity of modern living.
The customer regularly visits friends in Vancouver and wanted something special to remember is the time spent in the city. Fraser accommodated his specific requests for the location, time of day and the Canuks jersey numbers on the two figures! This has to be one of the most ultimate souvenirs you could ask for!

Fraser has in-depth experience working with clients as well as an incredible work ethic to deliver not only a beautiful painting but a custom art purchasing experience.

Greta’s joyous and whimsical West Coast paintings are familiar both in their stunning beauty and their intimate charm. Utilizing the intricate design and vivid colours, her artwork capture the idyllic qualities that are intrinsic to the serenity of coastal life and nature.
“Viewers in front of my paintings most often remark that the first thing to strike them is the emotional impact of the painting … the second response is to the light in the painting, and, of course my paintings are all about emotion and light. If the viewer has felt the emotion I felt when I painted the piece, then we have clicked.”-Bill Webb
