Original Paintings and Reproductions

Roy A Burton

Roy A. Burton is a visual artist who has been drawing and painting most of his life.  Originally from La Scie, Newfoundland he has called Leamington, Ontario home for the past few years.  Roy works predominantly in acrylic, but has also dabbled in oils and watercolour.  Through a combination of careful observation ,delicate execution and fine delination. he depicts his subjects in a highly detailed and precise fashion.  Roy has managed to capture the ever changing moods and rhythms of the shoreline and woodland subjects - images that serve as a contemporary documentation of a disappearing lifestyle.  Roy has been exhibiting his artwork in galleries, juried shows, group and solo exhibitions.  This award winning artist's work is featured in private collections including Japan, Great Britian, Australia, Africia, USA, and Canada.  Other private collections include that of a former Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador and Pelee Island Winery in Kingsville, Ontario. Roy's work is also found in several galleries in Newfoundland as well as Ontario. Roy also has donated works to Delta Waterfowl.
