Petley-Jones, Llewellyn

About the artist

Born in Edmonton in 1908, Llewellyn began learning his craft from magazines, books and other sources and quickly showed a gift for painting and drawing. After working as a bank clerk for three years, he turned to painting. In 1927 he became a member of the Edmonton Art Club and in 1931 one of the original members of the Alberta Society of Artists. A selection of his paintings were accepted that same year at an annual juried show at the National Gallery of Canada.
