Robert J.W.Arnold (aka Bob) graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from The University of Western Ontario, London, ON in 1972, with a Birks Gold Medal. He studied under Tony Uhrquart and Duncan De Kergommeaux.
For 33 years he was a Fine Arts Conservator at Canadian Conservation Institute in Ottawa where he restored paintings and other art objects for many museums and galleries across the country. All the while he continued to paint and develop his style, laboring in obscurity except for one solo show and two group shows in Ottawa.
In 2007 he retired from the Public Service of Canada. That opened the opportunity to finally work full time at his art. He is now concentrating on creating new art and establishing venues for showing his work publicly. In 2012 he joined the artists`run Foyer Gallery at the Nepean Sportsplex in Ottawa,where he displays regularly.
