|Ian Ridpath is a Canadian oil painter who grew up in Toronto Canada in a family of artists and artisans. He began charcoal and pen & ink sketching in his school years and then followed his father’s coaching in turning to oils. Several years ago an older brother further encouraged him to delve deeper into oils and mentored him by example.
Because of his love for the Canadian ‘Group of Seven’ he has followed their style of impressionism and has produced several ‘impressions-of-the-Group’ as well as many of his own subjects. His love of the Canadian landscape has been a major influence in his choice of subject.
Locally, Ian has been invited on more than one occasion to take part in the ‘Through the Eyes of an Artist’ week held each August at the Mountsberg Conservation Area and loves capturing the area in oils.
He regularly displays at the Fine Arts Society of Milton's AM Gallery and has a permanent display at Sweeties Cafe in downtown Milton.
He is a member of the Fine Arts Society of Milton and Arts Milton.
