The desire to draw and paint has been with Dennis Novosad from an early age. Following his devotion to a growing family and career at the University of Guelph, Dennis now directs more energy and talent to the visual arts. Fine Art courses at the University of Guelph and numerous workshops have helped develop his keen sense of colour and composition. In 2005 and 2012, Dennis, lived in Australia with his wife on teacher exchanges. He used his photography talent to capture images of the varied landscapes and beautiful birds of Australia and transformed some of these images into paintings. Before departing for home, Dennis held a successful solo exhibitions in New South Wales both times, displaying his watercolours. Resuming his painting and picture framing business in Canada, Dennis has now expanded his media to acrylic, oils and charcoal. Although he keeps returning to watercolour for the challenge. Pastel is another media that he enjoys working with because of its flexibility and vibrant colours. Winning awards and having sold his paintings in Canada, United States and Australia has allowed his talents to be enjoyed by many.
“Painting and drawing allows one to look deep into your surroundings. It stimulates the visual sense and makes you appreciate the beauty that is around us. Nature’s colours and composition are always there to discover and work with.”
