“A childhood of daydreaming and drawing has evolved into a career of making paintings that are primarily a celebration of imagination. Along the way I took a detour into the world of Architecture, but after an enthusiastic response to my paintings at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 1990, I began painting full time. Huckleberry Fine Art, in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area took the success of my work to a new level, and began publishing limited edition reproductions of it. Three children’s books have been created using my paintings: Imagine a Night, Imagine a Day and Imagine a Place. Master of Illusion is the name of the calendar series that contains my artwork, now in its sixth year.” – [from the Facebook page of Robert “Rob” Gonsalves]
