About The Artist
Both playful and haunting, Drew Mosley’s illustrative, character-based works on wooden panels and bowls are simultaneously innocent and foreboding. Scenes depict the creatures and belles of Mosley’s imagined world, in which they appear frozen and in mid mission. In these moments of peril or safety, anthropomorphized beasts struggle to fend off the encroachments of their two legged foes.
Drew Mosley is an artist and carpenter living in Ottawa, Ontario. He spends his days between an exhaustive studio practice and various building and woodworking projects around the Ottawa Valley. His free time is spent bushwhacking through the wilderness with his wife and their gentle giant Olive, their Newfoundland dog. Drawing from the solitude and resiliency of nature, these influences figure prominently throughout Drew’s paintings.
