David Goatley was born and trained in London, England. He is widely recognized as one of Canada’s foremost portrait painters with official portraits of former Prime Minister Kim Campbell and Speaker, Gilbert Parent, hanging in the House of Commons in Ottawa. His portraits of leading figures from the arts and business communities, as well as the many children and families he has painted, hang in almost 200 collections across Canada and the United States.
Though he has painted several very large indoor pieces for private collections and the Church, ours was his first outdoor mural.
He is represented by Portraits Incorporated, The Portrait Group, and Portraits North in the United States, and Fine Art Commissions Limited in England. He represents himself here in Canada and is always delighted to discuss future commissions.
