Artist, Active Citizen Doug Brinkman, 61
I first expressed creativity on my parents' basement walls and inside the blank pages of my grandfather's leather-bound encyclopaedia collection. My parents put a stop to that and began to supply me with a steady stream of paper and pencils with which to draw. In high school I took courses in commercial art and printing, and learned how to develop photos and produce short video features. I learned to fly and hiked the West Coast Trail 3 times.

I came to Edmonton in 1980 to continue a career as a newspaper printer, first for the Edmonton Sun and finally with the Edmonton Journal
I became involved with community theatre, painting sets and volunteering as public relations director for Walterdale Playhouse Theatre. In 2007 I became a civil information activist and began publishing citizen news stories on YouTube. Unemployed and forced into early retirement I keep myself busy as a full time artist and continue to publish news stories on YouTube freely.

& The Group of Seven
It was in 1924 when members of Canada’s Group of Seven expanded their artistic subject matter to include Western Canada. That year, Lawren S. Harris, a founder and key spokesperson for the Group, and fellow Group member A.Y. Jackson traveled to Jasper National Park.​ 90 years later, in the early spring of 2014, I spent my evenings sketch studying Lawren Harris and A.Y.Jackson inside the Art Gallery of Alberta, where thier works were on display. Later that year, in the spring and fall,  I set out with my backpack, canvas and paints to paint in the same area of Maligne Lake as they did 90 years earlier. 1924 Maligne Lake YouTube

The 2016 Fire and Rain art project​ 

1924 Maligne Lake 2014
This art project is an opportunity for me to paint freely in public while promoting freedom of expression showing art outdoors in the streets and public squares of Edmonton. It’s an opportunity for Albertans to share stories of how the wildfires and the rains that followed in Alberta have affected them, our communities and the environment. My project includes 22 paintings, Fort McMurray, Slave Lake and Jasper National Park YouTube features, news stories, photos and my daily artist log.  Doug Brinkman   Back Page Link
