Jerry Davidson | Artist
Jerry Davidson comes from a family of artists. He works in a variety of media in a highly realistic style often combined with an element of mystery or ambiguity. His paintings and drawings have been sold through a number of public and private galleries in Canada. Jerry is an honorary member of the Drawing Society of Canada.
In the past Jerry enjoyed a parallel interest in photography particularly in the field of theater and classical dance. He has photographed some of the major ballet companies in Canada: the National Ballet, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and the forerunner to Ballet B.C. He has had several illustrated articles published in photo, dance and travel magazines in both Canada and the United States. Author of “From Black and White to Colour”, his popular book on photographic darkroom technique, published by Pembroke Publishers of Toronto, is now in its third printing.
Jerry was formerly a military and airline pilot and had a long association with the air show industry as a team photographer with Canada’s famous military air demonstration squadron, the “Snowbirds”.
Jerry has lived on Salt Spring Island for the last 30 years where he works out of his home studio. He and his wife, Susan, share many activities such as hiking, tennis and golf.
