Native                    Hoka Hey!

These past couple of years have been difficult for artists, as exhibitions have been severely curtailed. However last summer IceBear had his first exhibition in 3 years, and it was the largest collection of original work he has ever displayed.  With this site, we hope to replace the exhibition experience for those who miss it,  answer some of the myriad of questions the artist gets, and hopefully, recreate a bit of the personal experience of attending an opening. 

This website is really a photo album,  with a retrospective look at IceBear art in all its variations, and to help you know more about the artist himself, with a few stories, and a some highlights of his long career. If there is something else you would like to know, please go to the last page and send us a question by email.

Welcome to IceBear’s world, a place where imagination rules, wonder and curiosity are the order of the day. 

Translation and meaning is often left entirely to you the viewer; interpret and take away from any individual piece  

of art what you will. 

Some will find magical beings, spirits or imaginary 

creatures floating through, others will find nothing 

but the most obvious.

There is no right or wrong. But we have been told by 

many collectors that even years after living with a 

painting, one day when they look at it, they find 

something they have never seen before. Perhaps it is a trick 

of the light, a shadow, a fleck of dust, but that original sense of wonder is recreated, and we receive happy posts of 

thanks and appreciation!
