About John Garfitt

Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. I was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, in 1952 and moved to Canada in 1957. I've had a lifelong interest in science, art and sailing. As a young man I loved to draw, but took a long hiatus until trying my hand at painting in 2012. Acrylics are my preferred medium because they dry quickly. I was educated as a geologist and later as a mechanical engineer. Achieving a balance of the artistic and the technical has always been important to me. For the past 35 years, Vancouver has been my home except for a year working in Indonesia, a place which remains in my heart to this day. My great love has always been sailing, a preoccupation that consumed most of my attention, time and money...the rest I just wasted. Now, art has re-emerged as a focus in my life. My paintings attempt to capture some of the experiences, places and things that have meaning for me. I don't think I have a particular style, and I'm not sure I want one. I think each piece should be experimental in some way...and unique. Painting teaches me to see the world from different perspectives. I believe it is important to take risks and to stretch. I am inspired by the works of Andrew Wyeth and Brian LaSaga. I am a member of the Canadian Federation of Artists.
