Robert Landry has been an artist since childhood. From the early start of winning a three speed bike for the best drawing for Fire Prevention Week in Grade Six, Robert has been actively involved in art.

While in high school, Robert studied drafting and mechanical drawing. He also took a fine art drawing course through correspondence. Robert has spent time in New York studying the work of masters such as John Singer Sargent, and Joaquin Sorolla. In 1980, Robert switched mediums from acrylic to oil paint, finding the slow drying process much more suited to his style.

Now an artist full time, Robert spends most of his time painting. A western artist by nature, Robert depicts the landscape, history and activities of the North American West in much of his art. Robert’s paintings have an intimate connection with the land, and are full of nature’s energy and light.
