Kitchener-based artist Jeremy Smith creates exquisitely crafted works in the media of precision: egg tempera and graphite pencil.

His meticulous portraits, landscapes, and interiors are carefully planned and slowly developed, so fans of Smith’s work can wait several years between exhibitions of new works. His approach reflects his love of the Dutch and Flemish Masters as well as the Japanese brushwork he studied in his youth.

Smith’s work has been shown extensively over the past 40 years at institutions including the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Fischer Fine Arts in London, England, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, British Columbia, and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick. His paintings and drawings have been collected by the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, the London Regional Art Gallery, the Hamilton Art Gallery and by many private and corporate art lovers.
