 Allan Botting
Allan Botting

Allan Botting has spent all his working life in Mechanical Engineering with a long time interest in aviation. Now retired and painting as a hobby he says he is happy to be in the company of these accomplished CAAA artists. His inspiration comes from years of reading, viewing and flying aircraft. Historical depiction is high on the list of subjects providing the fulfillment of painting a scene and using a style similar to famous aviation artists such as Robert Taylor, William Phillips and Roy Grinnell to name a few. Painting the subject in as realistic a manner as he is capable of doing is his goal. Satisfaction comes from aviation peers recognizing the image and providing a painting that will be cherished.

 Len Boyd

Len Boyd

Len’s passion for art was sparked after seeing a fifteen minute vignette on CBC television showcasing renaissance artists including Leonardo DaVinci. Len produced some water-coloured ‘masterpieces’ of his own and eagerly sold them to fellow classmates for quarters and dimes as payment. With the encouragement of his teachers and peers he continued his artistic journey until high school graduation. Unable to afford tuition to an art college, Len fine-tuned his self-taught painting skills with oils at first, and then switched over to his medium of choice, acrylics.

Since the late 1990’s Len’s paintings have been given away as gifts, commissioned, donated to charitable events and have been showcased at select galleries, exhibitions and museums in Prince George and in Halifax.

Ever since attending his very first airshow in the summer of 1978, Len became fascinated with the aesthetic beauty of military aircraft. His admiration of these magnificent machines later found their way onto his canvases.

In the summer of 2011, Len was selected to participate in a provincially sponsored entrepreneurial business development program and just four months later officially launched his very successful on-line art gallery, Skyze the Limit Art, nearly a year to the day of having arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Len works out of his home studio/gallery in Hubley, Nova Scotia overlooking scenic Five Island Lake. He lives with his beautiful and tolerant girlfriend Patty along with their three adorable cats: Ty, Sly and Ally.

 Richard Hamilton
Richard Hamilton Richard Hamilton received his first camera at the age of 7. His first picture was of his friend while facing into the sun. That was also his first lesson in lighting. That moment in time defined who he would become and after a 28 year career in television production, his first passion has found it’s way back into Richard’s everyday life.

Often hearing stories of the days his father spent in the Sea Cadets, the opportunity to be one of a handful of teenagers chosen to attend the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, the rare opportunity to be on an aircraft carrier as he travelled to England, his father also spoke of the unfortunate story that surrounds the Avro Arrow.

While visiting many museums and art shows, Richard began to develop a concept for a unique collection of photos. With a desire to see the greatest achievements in air travel come back to life, the goal was to mix technical design, images and a little artistic flair to once again see them fly.

Richard invites you to view his prints either here or by visiting his website (Always a work in progress) at Image 11 Photography. Feel free to contact him with any questions you may have.

Richard resides in Caledon Ontario and enjoys photographing a wide range of subject matter including nature, landscapes, animals and aviation. Photography isn’t about taking pictures, it’s about capturing moments in time. Each moment tells a story and each story can last just a few seconds. Be it a mountain side or a busker on the street, light hits all of us the same way and each of us has a story to tell.

 Michael McLaughlin

Michael McLaughlin is a self-taught artist who has been painting since 1996. He has developed his own technique for portraying aircraft: carefully applying seven discrete shades of colour from dark to light rather than blending them, resulting in a stylized image. Acrylic paint is applied by brush to canvas board. Each painting is a labour of love that takes about two months to complete. He has completed 100 paintings and has had numerous showings at the former Toronto Aerospace Museum. Michael lives in Etobicoke and lists his hobbies as model building, reading, photography and cycling.

 E Mitchell

After growing up in an Air Force family, Eric became an air navigator himself and served on 407 and 404 squadrons flying on the Aurora maritime patrol aircraft. He left the service after ten years to work as a consultant on human engineering studies for several years. Most of his early work was pen-and-ink or acrylic, but he has lately been painting in watercolour, and although aircraft still interest him very much, he has been increasingly interested in painting landscapes and coastal scenes near his home on southern Vancouver Island.

 B Frank Oord (1940 - 2007)

In Memoriam: Frank was a founding member of CAAA and was an active contributor to the association.

Frank received most of his education in The Netherlands, where he studied industrial design, engineering as well as graphic design, with further studies in Canada at the University of Toronto, College of Education.

He moved to Canada after serving two years in the Royal Dutch Navy. He travelled and worked throughout Canada as artist, teacher, and designer while at times engaged in diverse projects such as jet-engine development, communication satellites, earth-station antennas, and mobile telephone equipment. Frank maintained gallery-artist status during those years.

His aviation paintings were selected for most of the annual juried ArtFlight exhibitions at the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa. His work is among the prize winners, with several of his paintings forming part of the Museum's permanent collection.

His artwork remains as a testament to his talent, unique style and interest in aviation art.

 George Pendlebury
George Pendlebury

George was born in Montreal and graduated from McGill University. He moved to Calgary in 1968 to pursue a career as an exploration geologist in the petroleum industry. His involvement with art resulted from a personal need, rather than intent. He wanted a two dimensional representation, (other than a photograph), of an antique airplane he owned. Since paying someone else to provide the artwork was an option unacceptable to him, painting began. Several renderings of aircraft were completed before his focus shifted to automobiles. Later, architectural subjects also caught his attention. George left the 'oil patch' in 1993 to devote all his time to painting. In 2000, his focus returned to his first love - aircraft. George's work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and Great Britain and has won many awards in regional, national, and international competitions. George is a past-president of CAAA.

 Peter Robichaud
Peter Robichaud - aviation artist

Peter has spent the majority of his life in one uniform or other - from Beavers and Scouts to Air Cadets, and finally a nearly three-decade career with the Canadian military. He has extensive operational experience with all elements- air, land, sea, and the Special Forces.

Peter’s passion for aviation began at a very young age in Chatham, New Brunswick with its nearby air base providing an endless source of inspiration. After flying with gliders, Cessnas, and other military airframes as an Air Cadet, his dream was to pursue a career as an Air Force pilot. Unfortunately, lack of the required perfect vision prevented this. In 1986, a chance conversation led him to discover, somewhat reluctantly, the world of Army tanks, which shortly after became his career until 2004 when he transferred to the Canadian Forces Intelligence Branch.

Peter has been painting since he was twelve years old and has never put his brushes down. His paintings are defined by a meticulous attention to detail of his subjects, which include aviation, portraiture, animals, and abstract pieces. He has produced numerous commissions for military units and personnel, as well as private individuals throughout the country. He has had art shows at museums and other locations throughout the Maritimes.

Peter’s preferred medium is acrylics and he paints from his home studio in Halifax. He is currently working on subjects for a book series on Canadian Forces jet powered fighter aircraft, is producing commissions for the Air Force, Army, and Navy, and works on other non-aviation related art subjects.

 Ronald Wong
 

Ronald's name needs little introduction to the aircrew of military bases in Western Europe and the United States, for whom his precise and dramatic artwork has been a familiar presence for many years. His original training in Britain was in Biochemistry, and it was only after years of service in the Health Service that he decided to embark on a career in painting, in particular of a childhood love, aviation.

He is a long-standing Member of the Guild of Aviation Artists in the UK, where he has won many prizes over the years, and also of the American Society of Aviation Artists. Aside from the numerous paintings he has achieved over the years which hang all over the world, he has to date published some 170 runs of lithographic prints, which must be something of a record for an individual artist. Apart from aviation, his artistic interests range from motoring and marine art to portraiture, animals and landscapes.
