Hi, my name is Jerry Vander Wal, I am a 54 year
old interior decorator, and son of the artist.
My father lives in Nova Scotia on the Bay of Fundy with his wife, poet and artist, Jane Aaron Vander Wal. He is in wonderful health and is painting at the top of his form. They live surrounded by the same trees, flowers, sky and sea that embrace the viewer in the last 25 years of his work. This web site is my homage to my father and his life's work.
I grew up in the home of an artist in a small private prairie town, an unusual situation in my world. Much of the work has been produced in the years since I left home. The location of Jack and Jane's home on a bluff overlooking the bay, with surrounding woods and meadows, inspires both their lives and work.
