Neville was born in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1948, and has lived on Hornby
Island, British Columbia since 1970. Vaughn’s interest in
painting began early on as an art student and later flourished under
the mentorship of iconic Canadian abstract painter Jack Shadbolt.
Vaughn’s early abstractions of the natural landscape have in
the last decade developed into complete abstraction, forging a
determined and rigorous exploration of the possibilities of paint and
canvas. From 1986 to 1995 Vaughn exhibited his work with the Bau-xi
gallery in Vancouver and Toronto and has since shown his work
independently in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Vaughn has been
dedicated to his full time painting practice for the past 40 years, and
his work is in private and corporate collections throughout the world.
He shares his life on Hornby Island with his wife Susan Cain, who is
also an artist.
