Desmond Raymond is a landscape artist who works in oil, acrylic and watercolour as well as photography. He received his technical training as a draughtsman and naval architect at the Marine Institute in the early nineties. He also undertook training at the Richmond Art Gallery School, BC along with extensive self study that he continues to pursue.
His style is unique and impressionist in nature. He cites Tom Tompson, the Group of Seven, Jean Paul Lemieux and Clarence Gagnon as artists who have influenced his particular style. He is an avid outdoorsman and spends his time hiking, photographing and painting the Canadian scenes he loves and wants to share with others.
His passion is capturing and expressing the vast and varied Canadian landscape. He has travelled and painted throughout Canada. Born and raised in St. John's, Newfoundland, he has lived in Vancouver, BC and currently lives and bases himself in Winnipeg, MB.
