The Art and Adventures of Stewart Marshall
By (author) Andrew Scott
Painter, Paddler by Andrew Scott
Book DescriptionArt lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike will be captivated by this stunning, full-colour biography that celebrates and showcases the life and work of an extraordinary man--artist Stewart Marshall. For much of the past two decades, Stewart Marshall has travelled hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles in a hand-built kayak, living off the land and the sea and painting on some of British Columbia's most remote shorelines. His unusual way of life has taken him to countless distant places, from the wilds of Quebec to the South Pacific. Marshall's art is sought after by discerning collectors across Canada and the U.S. Most of his work is purchased without ever reaching the gallery community. Born in Montreal, he now lives in the coastal village of Sointula, B.C. Painter, Paddler: The Art and Adventures of Stewart Marshall features Stewart Marshall's dramatic watercolour, acrylic, and oil paintings. It also includes sketches and drawings from his diaries, carried with him on his kayaking expeditions. In addition, Andrew Scott describes the artist's many adventures on the water, his experiences with wild animals and even wilder weather. This insightful portrayal captures the highs and lows of a lifetime of painting and paddling, especially on the Pacific coast of North America.
