Steve Delamar was born in Southport, England. He painted his first oil painting at the age of eleven, the first of many. He has painted through-out his life, on both coasts and in various styles and media, as well as working in the applied arts: illustration, sign design, and graphic arts.
Steve has studied art at Douglas College, B.C.- but is mostly part self taught and is still constantly striving to expand his art. He has owned and operated his own gallery near Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia, as well as showing in various galleries in B.C. His style is influenced by Impressionism as well as Canada’s Group of Seven.
He now lives in Chilliwack, B.C., working primarily in oil and acrylic and strives to convey the serenity and joy that he experiences in painting the Canadian landscape.
