Doug Fraser – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Doug Fraser

Born and raised on Cape Breton Island, Doug Fraser was surrounded by the arts in the form of Celtic folklore, Gaelic song and traditional Cape Breton Step Dancing but it was sketching where his artistic talent was first discovered. After 30 years of self-directed experimentation Doug is now a full time oil on canvas and linen professional artist. After several years of showing/selling his work through Art Galleries and art showings Doug now enjoys welcoming visitors from all corners of the earth to his own studio/gallery for a conversation through art.  His pursuit is light, and his unique style and his close connection to the landscape and its rich cultural history enables him to create that ethereal perspective he has become so well known for in his landscape and seascapes. His use of light, colour and subject matter touches a cord with the viewer worldwide.
