About Neil Depew

I was born in Montreal in 1964 and moved to Nova Scotia with my family at age six. Growing up by the ocean near Peggy's Cove, I was inspired to try to capture the beauty of the area. Basically self-taught, I was influenced by my artistic mother and began painting in 1984, developing a distinctive watercolour style of strong, vivid, colourful images combined with the soft, foggy scenes that are typical of the area.
