About the Artist

Grant Gulland is a retired teacher who has had a love of art, painting and aviation most of his life.  He is a retired reserve RCAF officer and licensed pilot.  Grant is a volunteer at the Canadian Warplanes Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario and a crew member on a vintage DC-3 that flies at airshow around southern Ontario.  He is also an excellent carpenter.

Grant has decided to translate his love of airplanes to canvas and create paintings of a variety of both civilian and military aircraft.  Although aviation his first love, he also enjoys painting landscape and other subjects with equal enthusiasm.  Many of his paintings stem from his life experience and travels using photographs for the main ideas.

Grant’s paintings are created using acrylic paint on canvas, however, frequently works in a variety of other mediums, including pencil, crayon, coloured pencil, pastel and ink.
