More About The Artist

Mr. Burdeny has painted impressionistic and abstract renditions of his surroundings for the past forty-five years. Depending on the mood or subject matter, Burdeny utilizes techniques employing brush or palette knife work, thusly imparting subtle gradations of colour or heavy impasto palette knife texture.

Whether painting the High Arctic, The Prairies, or abstract impressions of his surroundings, Burdeny uses strong colour a deft handling of light and shadow.

Many of his works hang in private and corporate collections in North America and Europe.
