Chris Dickson

Growing up in a family that loved the outdoors, animals and the water, I have continued those passions in my adult life. I focus a lot of my art on the unlimited amount of beauty found in nature and what surrounds me and I paint whatever makes me happy. 

Pursuing Photography in college and then owning a professional photography studio in Belleville, ON for many years taught me to focus on composition, light and colour.  I have captured many beautiful photographs in my travels that are now my muse for painting. 

​I am a mostly self-taught artist who paints mainly in acrylic but love to experiment with any medium that I find exciting.  I love the challenge of learning a new technique or style, using a different colour pallet or subject.  I also love that I will never run out of those things.

 I am an active member of the Rideau Lakes Artists' Association and the Smiths Falls Arts and Culture Council.  I participate in as many local area art shows as possible and show my work at some of the many Rideau Lakes Artists’ Association’s venues.  I also welcome pet and landscape commissions. 

My website has some of both my original paintings and my photography.  Enjoy browsing.
