Born in Toronto, David Rose studied at the Ontario College of Art, and later received a diploma in fine arts at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario. He also has a Master’s degree in Canadian Art History from Concordia University, Montreal.
Since 2003 David has concentrated on painting primarily urban scenes and rural landscapes. His preferred technique is acrylics on canvas or Masonite board. As a low-vision artist with macular-degeneration, he uses his own photographs as source material, and employs visual aids when creating his pictures.
David has exhibited work in solo and group exhibitions in Ontario and Quebec. He now lives in St. Catharines, Ontario.
