Canadian artist Denis Mayer Jr. has earned international recognition for his unique style of wildlife painting, which offers not only surprisingly realistic images, but also paintings filled with energy and warmth. A native of Quebec city, Denis knew from childhood that he would be an artist. At first, he worked with his father, a trade expert. This training served as the Foundation, as he privately studied charcoal drawing, bringing his talent for collecting details to images of both still lifes and constructed structures. Then he worked for many years to create accurate and attractive architectural renderings, as well as commercial illustrations for advertising.
As a specialist conservationist and a member of the international organization artists for conservation, Denis has contributed to fundraising for organizations that include the world wildlife Federation of Canada, the Quebec wildlife Federation, and the arts of nature. His work was selected for an Art portfolio through Ducks Unlimited in 2007-2009.
Denis lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and three children and enjoys walking in the woods with his family. He also listens to both live and recorded music, and enjoys Italian Opera, which he listens to while working.
