Doug Crook is a retired banker whose career included postings in the UK, USA and Canada. His formal education was in the field of business (B. Comm. 1968, University of Manitoba) but he has drawn and painted since early childhood. Extensive travel has given him an appreciation for a broad range of artwork.

Since retiring from banking in 2012, Doug has been able to devote his energy to his lifelong passion for art. A longtime resident of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Doug is constantly inspired by the beauty of the western Canadian landscape which affords an endless source of subject matter. Doug’s wife is a native of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada where the couple spends their summers.
