About Don Cavin

Don Cavin retired from teaching in Ontario schools with “an overwhelming compulsion” to paint the Ontario landscape in its many year round guises. A firm believer in painting on location, he also enjoys composing larger paintings in the studio in which the “essence” of the landscape can best be expressed using simplification of form and a “celebration” of colour.

His solo and group exhibitions over the recent years have resulted in sales, both private and corporate, in Canada, the United States and overseas. His work has garnered rewards of merit in several juried shows over the years, and the growing popularity of his unique approach to the landscape of his native Ontario has resulted in an increasing demand for his work.

Recently, his active teaching schedule has slowed down but he is in demand occasionally as a consultant and juror, and continues to show regularly at Buckingham Fine Art near Uxbridge, Ont.
