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.

Farmboy Fine Arts was first introduced to Dana Mooney, a Vancouver-based painter, in 2013. Our team was immediately impressed with Dana’s ability to read an interior space and create pieces to perfectly complement it. True to form, Dana secured her first hotel lobby commission with FBFA not long after signing — a striking, gestural piece for the Vancouver Hyatt.

Initially drawn to her abstracted ‘Birch Tree’ series, which offers a subtle nod to nature, FBFA has watched her artistic range grow. Her portfolio offers florals and abstracts, small-scale studies and large-scale murals, soft pastels and vivid tones. Each series she creates offers a slightly different aesthetic, appealing to masculine and feminine audiences alike.

Dana is currently preparing for an artist residency in Sicily. We look forward to seeing how this new location will serve as fresh inspiration and wish her safe travels!

Christin Gilbert is a photographer whose work knows no boundaries. Based in Vancouver, Christin is an exemplar of the place FBFA calls home: she is equally comfortable pounding the pavement of the city or blazing trails on the local mountains, relaxing on the beach or laying tracks in the snow. She has a keen eye for capturing quiet corners of busy cities, making every new place seem like home.

Collaborating with FBFA since 2009, Christin’s submissions always inspire us. Her portfolio reflects the many locales she has visited, taking us around the world. Christin’s work appeals to the wanderer in each of us, inviting us along to enjoy the view.
