Ladd Fogarty | Regina, SK
I am a retired Art teacher, spending the final twelve years of my career at Campbell Collegiate. I currently work in acrylic, wood, clay, soapstone and glass, gaining most of my inspiration from Saskatchewan land, sky, water, and people who live in harmony with the earth. When I start a painting, I look forward to the challenge of making something beautiful. I choose to represent ‘place’ as it is experienced and as it is remembered, always considering the characteristics of natural light and the influence it has on our perception.
Each painting, wood vessel, and clay object gives me the opportunity to share my way of experiencing our world. I consider myself very fortunate when others enjoy and become engaged with my artwork. This is the most satisfying part of the creative process.
