overview

Cliff Kearns attempts to express his unique and reflective view through the creation of contemporary abstract mixed media painted and 3D works. He has always been active exploring and creating personal fine art throughout a formidable career of private/corporate commissions, and freelance design/illustration projects.

Working from his studio in London ON Canada, a career of 35 years has seen Kearns develop and refine his talent through the creation and production of a large, eclectic array of work. This has included Wyeth-like rural paintings for International Harvester, Rockwellian depictions of people with their favourite cars for General Motors, Aviation Posters, reproduced and collected by enthusiasts across North America, and formal oil portraits of public figures. Other notable commissions included the only officially authorized Painting of Terry Fox for The Marathon of Hope and a major outdoor clay mural commission for the Centenary of the City of Chatham.
