"W. R. Brownridge graduated from the Alberta College of Art (Calgary, Ab., Canada) in 1957. Following that he was a professional graphic designer for some 30 years, finishing his career as Art Director in one the city's top advertising firms: Francis, Williams and Johnson. During that time he received a Canada Council Grant in 1975 to paint the vanishing railroad architecture of the Prairies and that series of original paintings was widely exhibited. As well, in 1981 he received a commission from the Calgary Winter Olympic Development Association to render a series of serigraphs depicting the games' events. There were later used as part of Calgary's winning bid for the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Over the years, his art has been exhibited in galleries and art venues across the country. Most significantly, he has had exhibitions in Calgary's famed Glenbow Museum and the National Musuem of Science and Technology in Canada's capital city of Ottawa.
Since 1988 he has had 15 individual shows, most of which sold out, and his paintings are presently available in three different Canadian galleries. His work was recenly chosen for use by the world-reknowned relief agency UNICEF. The U.S. Olympic Centre in Colorado has purchased several pieces. He's been exhibited in Toronto's Hockey Hall of Fame. Added to this are the many corporations, NHL hockey teams, NHL players, and hundreds of individuals who collect his art. Furthermore, he's appeared inside and on the front page of daily newspapers across the country, he's appeared in magazines, and he's been on CBC Radio and CBC TV including Newsworld.
In 1995 he left advertising so he could dedicate himself exclusively to painting. Since then he has also become the writer and illustrator of his own series of best-selling children's books. In summation, he is a talented and highly-regarded Canadian artist"
