Havers Art

After a 35+ year career as a graphic artist in the Comox Valley, Neil Havers felt it was time to explore an alternative creative pursuit: landscape painting. He has always been impressed with the ability of landscape artists to capture the mood and beauty of the Canadian wilderness with what appears to be simple, elegant strokes of the brush. Artists such as Tom Thomson and Robert Genn, as well as many other current artists, inspire him to learn what it takes to compose landscape images with feeling.

Neil enjoys both the plein-air and studio painting experiences. The Comox Valley offers limitless locations for plein air painting inspiration. In the studio, he paints from reference photography he’s shot over the last 40 years.
