J. Ian Ridpath - History, Shows and Awards

picture of Ian Ridpath

I was born and raised in Toronto in a family of artists and was surrounded by oil painters and oil paintings.

After some training by an older brother, I started painting using the impressionist style influenced by the Canadian Group of Seven and Tom Thomson for many of my works.

Much of my work now involves painting local scenes on canvases ranging from as small as 6" x 8" to larger 36" to 48" pieces on gallery canvases.

I enjoy doing commissioned work from client's photographs of their homes, cottages or favorite vacation spots.

I am now located in Nepean, Ontario, Canada.
