Storm Chaser presents 80 of Ian Sheldon's vibrant, highly dramatic storm paintings. His works speak of a connection to the land and sky of the prairies, but more than that, they draw us into the experience of that seemingly infinite region. His portraits of the prairie's subtle lands and tumultuous storms capture the spirit of place that is so integral to a life surrounded by the vastness of an unending sky. Ian's storm paintings, in their complexity of colour, texture, light and shadow, serve as the centrepiece to Storm Chaser, but by combining them with his own captivating writing and selected excerpts from other exceptional writers and poets, Ian offers us a layered book that is a paean to the joy and beauty of living on the prairie. Now sit back, breathe, and let yourself be drawn into Ian Sheldon's world of wind, grass, sky and spirit.

Contributor notes

A passionate natural scientist with two science degrees under his belt, Ian Sheldon became distracted by the fine arts. He is now an established artist, and his shows in San Francisco, New York, across Canada and in England have firmly established his presence in the art world. Ian Sheldon has been listed in the Canadian Who’s Who since 2004, and further recognition has come from his other alma mater, the University of Alberta. Combining his talents as an artist with his academic knowledge of wildlife, Ian has published dozens of nature guides that grace bookshelves across North America. Hundreds of the original entomological illustrations are now a permanent part of the university’s highly reputed Bruce Peel Special Collections Library, serving as a testament to the artist’s skill in yet another creative arena.
