For Al Poolman, creating works of art was a lifelong source of pleasure, and expression. Beginning as fashion designer for such companies as Eaton’s, Simpsons and The Bay, Al went on to working as a set designer for CHEX-TV until he decided to pursue his love of art, full time.
He created over 2,000 paintings which grace private, and corporate collections around the world. Locally, Al Poolman was a generous supporter of charitable causes through donations of his works of art.
An amazing life-accomplishment for an artist both self-taught, and colour-blind!
