Canadian native Timothy Oldford was born on a farm in the Canadian Prairies. His mother was a landscape artist, so his childhood consisted of being dragged to every gallery across Canada at a very young age. His father taught Tim the basics of photography on his WWII camera and Tim immediately took to the magic that the camera possessed.
At fifteen Tim moved to Victoria and fell in love with the beauty of the coast. After school he got into photography more seriously and had some success with weddings and nature pictures being published in newspapers and books. When his kids came along Tim put his camera down (as a professional) for about fifteen years and only picked it up again after they graduated school. Today Tim concentrates on Canadian landscapes, US National Parks and images across Vancouver and Victoria.
As we begin a new year Crescent Lake Chair from Tim Oldford looks to the future and a gorgeous sunrise and Fairy Lake Bonsai embodies reflection and mystery.

With a studio in Wales, Paul Bailey is continually inspired by the farming landscape which surrounds his home: low rolling hills; intermittent woodland; ancient hedgerows; patch-work fields and vast skies. The semi-abstract nature of his work, the use of non-traditional techniques, bold compositions and a dynamic use of color help portray this seemingly prosaic landscape in a new, vivid and surprising way.
Our collection of Paul Bailey print-on-demand giclees includes Barcode Wood, a row of trees in the deep forest, and Seven Trees, a minimalist landscape with a row of golden trees.
Located in upstate New York, Tracy Helgeson is greatly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding the farmhouse in which she lives and works. It easily led her to paint local landscapes and more recently other farm-related imagery such as barns, fields and livestock. Tracy often paints the same scenes over and over, deriving great comfort from portraying the familiar as well as marking the small changes that occur over time in her environment.
“I strive for simplicity in my work; in color, form, composition, and subject matter. However, complexities inevitably find their way in via texture, handwritten elements and small bits of painted details.”
Our collection of Tracy Helgeson print-on-demand giclees includes Dark Corner, a quiet rendering of a rural country road, and Under a Blue Sky, a minimalist landscape with a jeweled blue sky.
