Ian Bell is a Canadian folk musician, storyteller, and visual artist. Ian’s introduction to art instruction began when he was an impressionable teenager at the Elliott Lake Summer School of the Arts. Ian studied animation at Sheridan College and visual arts at Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD). For over two decades he was the curator of rural Ontario community museums in which he was able to apply his love of painting to exhibit design and the creation of interpretive murals. In recent years, he has added printmaking to his output, in the form of linocuts, wood engravings and letterpress.
