James 'Jake' Fowell

James 'Jake' Fowell

James Fowell, familiarly known as 'Jake', is a retired Toronto architect who makes his home and studio on Twelve Mile Lake in Haliburton, Ontario. A 1968 graduate of the School of Architecture at the University of Toronto he practiced in Toronto designing homes, commercial buildings and schools. His experience also encompassed book and technical literature illustration, graphics, posters and trade show exhibition space design.

During his time at university he worked as a freelance cartoonist for the Toronto Telegram newspaper.

Jake studied watercolour painting, oil portraiture and life drawing at the Toronto School of Art and Central Technical School over a period of years. He has privately shown work and in gallery exhibitions and willingly accepts commissions.

His studio is in a shed he designed and built, along with the help of his wife Lee O'Connor, out of trees milled on their property.

Working in a variety of drawing and painting methods he has very recently become a member of the Canadian Aerospace Artists Association and looks forward to creating works in this challenging new area of endeavour.
