Mike Bernard’s portfolio is an adventure-seeker’s dream: coast to coast and forest to forest, Bernard is forever on the move, and impressing us with his photos the whole way. A Vancouver-based photographer, Bernard signed on with FBFA in 2005. His work highlights his masterful approach to organic photography and landscapes that capture the essence of his adventurous spirit. Art imitates life in his experimental abstractions, making it clear that nature really is his playground, both on camera and off.

The rich tones of his photographs and their nuanced focus on the approachability of the natural world illustrates Bernard’s approach to photography—and life—perfectly. An established photographer and cinematographer, Bernard’s perpetual motion is mirrored in the diversity and range of his portfolio—each image is timeless in its moment, much like nature itself.

Donna Giraud is a contemporary painter and celebrated artist partner of Farmboy Fine Arts. Giraud’s portfolio is largely abstract, with pieces that are richly textured and rendered with thick expanses of pigment. Her artworks have an intensity and intimacy to them; the atmospheric appearance speaks to tranquil coastal landscapes.

A self-taught artist, Giraud has dedicated time to developing and perfecting her style and craft. With formal training in nursing, Giraud sees the healing nature of art at work. Perhaps Giraud’s trade has subtly informed her art practice – many of her pieces are perfectly at home in both hospitality and healthcare environments.

Farmboy Fine Arts has a long-standing partner in David Dean. As one of the earliest photographers with which we began collaborating, David has spent the last ten years developing his style and range – and shows no sign of slowing down. Based in Calgary, Alberta, his images are rooted in place and experience, much like the life and work of a farmer.

David’s photography is diverse and engaging, ranging from thoughtfully composed architectural shots to far-away landscapes and adventure-fueled travel imagery. His playful nature comes through in explorations of positive and negative space, and the value of each. Whether capturing quiet moments in the midst of a bustling city, or savoring the essence of a new vista, David’s work speaks for itself.
