Tripp, the artist, is a free-spirited outdoorsman and entrepreneur who has plied in many trades. Originally from Nova Scotia Tripp has travelled the country extensively, pursuing multiple careers before coming ‘home’ and settling in Annapolis Royal, NS. Previously a fisherman and charter boat captain, Tripp’s art draws heavily on the stories and scenes gathered during his time at sea. Tripp’s artistic career started later in his life when at the age of 63 he received the gift of an art set from his wife Lynda.
Completely self-taught, Tripp’s artistic talents were fast apparent; he works primarily with acrylics on canvas but has also worked with oils and on a variety of interesting mediums such as vinyl records. His unique, vivid, and engaging impressionistic folk-art style, draws people in, inviting them to imagine the story presented and to travel with Tripp through his wonderland of vast seascapes and quaint coastal towns.
