Vaughn Neville

Vaughn Neville was born in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1948, and has lived on Hornby Island, British Columbia since 1970. Vaughn’s interest in painting began early on as an art student and later flourished under the mentorship of iconic Canadian abstract painter Jack Shadbolt. Vaughn’s early abstractions of the natural landscape have in the last decade developed into complete abstraction, forging a determined and rigorous exploration of the possibilities of paint and canvas. From 1986 to 1995 Vaughn exhibited his work with the Bau-xi gallery in Vancouver and Toronto and has since shown his work independently in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Vaughn has been dedicated to his full time painting practice for the past 40 years, and his work is in private and corporate collections throughout the world. He shares his life on Hornby Island with his wife Susan Cain, who is also an artist.
