David Goatley


I was originally trained in London, England, where I was born, and I have completed over 350 portrait commissions all across the continent since arriving here with my family in 1992.

My subjects have included official portraits of HRH The Duke of York KG (Prince Andrew), Prime Minister, The Right Hon. Kim Campbell and Speaker, The Hon. Gilbert Parent for Canada’s House of Commons; The Honourable Steven L. Point, Iona Campagnolo, and James Dunsmuir, Lt. Governors of BC; Premier Gordon Campbell; the Presidents of the Universities of Alberta and Trent, and the Chancellors of Simon Frazer University and the Universities of Victoria and Saskatchewan; philanthropists Michael Degroote, Eric Charman and Jeneece Edroff; business leaders such as Peter DeVaux, former Chairman of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and others making a difference in the fields of commerce and education.

I believe art is for sharing and teaching has been a path of giving back and sharing knowledge as well as growth for me. I have taught in schools, colleges, summer programs , art clubs and societies across North America. I enjoy it. It has enriched my life as an artist.

I offer a variety of workshops throughout the year, ranging from one, two or three days, to a full five day program, covering either portrait painting, figure painting or basic oil techniques. Classes can be tailored for beginners or advanced students.
