Lloyd Major

Lloyd Major

Lloyd was born at Rocky Mountain House Alberta. He had a flair for art at an early age, much to the concentration of his teachers. Over the years, he painted murals and was a sign painter, until he settled on his love for oil painting. He drew on his travels across Canada for inspiration, and eventually settled many years ago, here on Vancouver Island where he is well known for his many landscape and seascapes draw from the surrounding natural beauty.

"It doesn’t matter how many years one has painted, for me it is a part of my life which is a calling and a joy.” After many years of painting and teaching, Lloyd is semi retired (old artists never completely retire) and he is still doing both from his home in Parksville.
