Young at heart, Herbert is an explorer in the field of art. His acrylic landscapes, abstracted, yet reminiscent of earlier Canadian painters, are characterized by bold brushstrokes and colour.
In 2023 Herbert has added encaustic to his repertoire - get ready for some new creations to fall in love with.
I have been an artist all my life. For the first two decades I was a water-colourist, until a friend bought me a set of acrylic paints, and the magic happened. I had the freedom to make mistakes!
Can't say I've got as sure a handle on this - I'm easily influenced. Expressionist, cubist, surreal, abstract, impressionist.
Canvas, wood, metal, glass,
and often on my good clothes.
Nature is the artist's best teacher. Most of the time we are not patient enough to pay attention.
"I have nature and art and poetry. If that is not enough, what is enough?"
-Vincent van Gogh
