Doug Guildford Artist

Doug Guildford is a largely self-taught Canadian visual artist. He was born in Nova Scotia, in 1948, and lived there until graduating from Dalhousie University with a BA in Political Science in 1969. He lived in Vancouver throughout the 1970’s. Since then his home base has been in downtown Toronto.
