Doug CosbieDoug Cosbie seeks to imbue his paintings with “the truth of the light, the breeze, the ever-changing play of colours” of the Ottawa Valley and the Gatineau Hills.
In the style of A.Y Jackson, Cosbie tirelessly searches for the perfect painting place for his plein air practice. Cosbie attended the Emily Carr of Art and Design. As an undergraduate, he also worked in the studios of eminent Canadian artists Jack Shadbolt and Sam Black. He then apprenticed at Canada’s largest advertising agency, Maclaren’s, when numerous iconic commercial art designs were created.
Cosbie has exhibited for more than 35 years. His works can be found in permanent public and private collections around the world including: the Ontario legislative buildings in Queen’s Park, Toronto; the Canadian Embassy in Beijing; Domicile Developments and the collection of Peter Honeywell, Executive Director of the Council for the Arts, Ottawa. In 2002 he received the Queen Elizabeth II Gold medal from the Governor General to recognize “his significant contribution to Canada.”
