History

Born and raised in the heart of the beautiful Eastern Townships of Québec, Gordon Ladd has had a lifelong love of nature. Painting the rolling hills, the solitary grandeur of an ancient tree or the peace and serenity of a weather beaten barn, he is sharing his love and respect for the environment in which he lives. Working mainly in oils, the colour sense and pleasing characterizations of his striking, yet tranquil nature studies have become the trademark of his art. In 1967 he decided to study art under the direction of the late Ron Davies, a distinguished Canadian artist. After a time of instruction and developing his own unique style, he then spent a period teaching art in various local schools. In 1977 he stopped teaching to devote more time to his paintings. A major project of Gordon's was recording in oils, the vanishing and vanished water or steam powered mills of the Eastern Townships of Québec. Gordon Ladd paintings have been show in exhibitions in Montréal, Lennoxville, Toronto and through the Southern Québec Region. Paintings are also hanging in galleries in Québec and Ontario. His works are found in numerous private collections. He died in Knowlton, Québec in 2018.
