Bronson (Geoffrey) Smith works with acrylic paint on routered pine and incorporates balsa wood and pine strips in many of his finished pieces. A self-taught artist, he began experimenting with wood relief paintings in 1983. The early paintings focused on images of rural and urban Ontario - cows and barns, Toronto streetcars and old Victorian rowhouses. He began to start capturing scenes of eastern Canada - primarily Newfoundland and Labrador where his Dad was stationed there during WWII.
