Local Artist Featured in International Art Magazine


The 2013 Winter issue of ARABELLA, The Premier Canadian Consumer Art, Architecture & Design Magazine, will profile local fine art painter, Daniel Tibbits, as an Artist to Collect.
 In stores now at Chapters and Coles.

“ARABELLA showcases many talented artists and I am honoured to be amongst them,” said Tibbits. “Being profiled in an art magazine such as ARABELLA has been a major goal for my artistic career.”

Tibbits’ work reflects the natural world in a somewhat supernatural way. “Stones that fly, clouds that carry and sticks that glide. These are some of the images that excite me and have driven my painting passion for the past twenty years. I love making the impossible possible with just paint and brushes. Giving life to an empty space gives myself purpose and love for life.”
