Brian Buckrell


Brian retired from the University of Guelph (veterinary medicine) in 2001 and moved with his wife, Cathy, to Comox on Vancouver Island. Having achieved excellence in his profession, Brian retired early. He sold everything he had and moved to British Columbia into a small trailer to start a new life. It was a risk, but one that paid off. In learning to paint, and the effort he put forth, he is living his passion. Brian paints full time. He paints contemporary impressionistic interpretations of the Canadian landscape. Many of his paintings are made on location (plein air). He has received numerous awards for both his studio and plein air paintings and his work has been cited in prestigious art magazines in Canada and the USA.  In 2020 Brian will have the honour of Presenting at the Plein Air Convention & Expo in Denver Colorado, the largest gathering of plein air painters worldwide with over 1000 participants from countries all over the world.  

Brian is a student of art and continues to study with acclaimed artists. He is represented by galleries in BC, Alberta and Ontario. His work has sold throughout Canada and internationally. Brian and Cathy share their time between Comox, B.C. and Collingwood, Ontario.
