Barrie Chadwick, SFCA, MAIBC, is an artist in a dual love affair – with two countries – Australia and Canada. Born and raised on the east coast of Australia, he now lives and works in Vancouver, on the west coast of Canada. Working mostly in acrylics, and occasionally in watercolours, his work depicts the sunlight and shade, and atmospheric effects of landscapes and seascapes from many parts of the world.
The training and practice, in his early career, as an architect, can be noticed in the accuracy and detail of his work. In teaching, his ability to create enthusiasm in his students, and to impart his knowledge to them, coupled with his sense of humour,makes his workshops greatly in demand.
His work is impressionistic, with a distinctive palette and brushwork which is instantly recognizable. Galleries in British Columbia carry his work, and his paintings may be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA and Australia.
He has won awards with the Federation of Canadian Artists and International Artist Magazine. He is a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists with work in private and corporate collections in Canada and overseas.
