Inside the Studio Artist Interviews – with Doug Swinton
👉 Friday, April 1st 12:00 PM, MDT

Doug is a respected oil painter from Calgary Alberta. 

He is the “Swinton” in Swintons Art Supplies based in Calgary, hosts a video blog on You Tube and also does a new video interview format with artists called Art+Gibberish on You Tube. If you are in the art world, you know Doug! He is gracious, self-giving of his art knowledge and time, and is a Mentor for Mastrius – an online learning platform for artists.

“For me it’s always been more about the doing than the end product. It’s like being at a live concert. The energy that comes from the doing is a highly powerful thing.” says Doug.

Since Doug’s childhood, drawing and painting have always played an important role in his life. “A big part of me never really left kindergarten. I still live for the “Hey Mom, look what I made!” 
Exhibiting in galleries is just a bit of an extension of that. And today, besides being an artist,
Doug does many things to promote his art, learning about art, selling his art and teaching art.
