Overview

Art lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike will be captivated by this full-colour volume showcasing the life and work of an extraordinary man: artist Stewart Marshall.For much of the past two decades, Stewart has travelled hundreds, sometimes thousands, of kilometers each year 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 many distant places, from the wilds of Québec to the South Pacific.Born in Montreal, Stewart now lives in the coastal village of Sointula, B.C. His 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.Painter, Paddler features Stewart's dramatic watercolour, acrylic, and oil paintings and his serigraphs. It also includes sketches and drawings from the diaries he carries with him on his kayaking expeditions.
