Thomas Greavette

Thomas Greavette 16 x 20 oil on stretched canvas  SOLD
Before joining DPW I had spent a good deal of time on portrait work. This is one such example. Thomas Greavette was an internationally-renowned builder of classic boats. His portrait is one of a group of eight that I painted from small, grainy, black and white archival photos. The paintings depict individuals who shaped the early history of Gravenhurst, which is the Muskoka town my husband and I moved to several years ago. I'm very proud to have these portraits permanently installed in the town hall.


  1. What an accomplishment! To have your work collected publically and to have created such a painting from an imperfect source!

    1. Thank you, Kaethe. Comments from you really make my day.
