Artist Spotlight: Don Plumridge


This weekend, we are very excited that Don Plumridge will be joining us at the 8th Annual St. Armands Circle Art Festival in Sarasota, Florida.

We would like to share with you a little about Don’s background! Continue reading below:

From an early age, Don Plumridge expressed artistic talents through professional photography, stage and set design, acting, sculpting, writing and of course, oil painting.   After several years of formal art and design education in Canada, his homeland, he has spent his life in the creative world.

Following ten years in the television industry, Don founded and was CEO of his own advertising agency and graphic design studio in the metro Washington, DC area.   Functioning as its creative head, he wrote, produced and directed countless radio and television commercials worthy of two CLIO awards. As an art director, he created several award-winning advertising print campaigns.

Oil painting has always been his singular passion and personal creative focus. From his own photography and professional eye for composition and color harmonies, he creates canvases of surprising varied images. Although subjects currently favor water, boats and nautical landscapes, the artist varies technique, coloring and brush-work to accommodate the mood and pictorial impact.

Plumridge has yet to settle on one predictable subject theme or ‘style’ and doubts he ever will. Mostly self-taught yet guided by prominent painters since youth, he thrives on experimentation and the rewards of discovery. His studio and home is in Wimauma, Florida.
