PET PORTRAIT ARTIST bobby vandenhoorn
“Art has been a major interest for me over the past 20 years, consuming a majority of my time throughout my childhood and school years”
Thanks for checking out my art page, I really appreciate it!
I am an Okanagan artist who was born on Vancouver Island in 1982. I’ve been drawn towards Art & Design courses and classes growing up, and by the time I was 17, I was hired to paint my first outdoor wall mural for a small company in Port Alberni.
Since then, I have moved to the Okanagan in 2000 and have spent the last 16 years in the Lake Country, BC area. I have commissioned over 60 different murals for homeowners in the Okanagan, and also many businesses in the area, such as Byland’s Nursery, Kelowna Kia, Insite (Brandt’s Creek Mews), Pine Acres Care Facility and others.
Aside from murals, my real artistic passion is with oils on canvas, recently focusing on painting what I enjoy most which are portraits of the great musicians who have influenced me. I have done many custom pieces for individuals in the last 13 years in the Okanagan, and I always have a custom project on the go for someone who wants to preserve that special memory or gift something unique to a loved one.
I also spend much of my time training for half marathons, triathlons and trail runs as I always say, “Exercise gets the mind right.” If you have any questions or would like to discuss the possibility of your own custom original oil on canvas, please contact DJ.
