Geoffrey Grantham began painting en plein air early in his career, in 1995. He paints throughout his native Nova Scotia, repeatedly returning to certain inspiring locations - mainly, the globally rare barrens found in the Purcell’s Cove Backlands. Located just outside the city of Halifax, this unique landscape is characterized by jack pines growing among spectacular whaleback rock formations. He also returns to the stark, majestic Cape Breton Highlands as well as the expansive Annapolis Valley.Grantham’s multi-layered, powerful and complex paintings capture the uniqueness of Nova Scotia’s landscapes in their infinitely changing moods. Grantham’s work can be found in private collections across North America and Europe.
