David Ballantyne
Visual Art - Paintings - Drawings - Photography


Born in Alberta, Canada in the mid 20th century, David found making visual art to be his primary interest at an early age. Drawing came first followed by the discovery of photography at age 8 with the gift of his mother's 1930s box camera and he took up the challenge of painting in his later years.

While primarily self-taught he has taken many college level courses and workshops from various locations such as the Alberta College of Art, University of Alberta, University of Calgary, The Friends of Photography, and New School - The Parsons School of Design

He has won awards and exhibited his work in Canada, The USA and Europe. He has also been the recipient of arts grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and The Alberta Foundation for the Arts. He is represented in the collection of The Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

David currently resides in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
