Mr. Bateman, a Salt Spring resident and a nationally acclaimed artist, is known for his realistic and evocative painting style, reflecting his deep understanding and appreciation for nature, as well as for being a spokesman for many conservation issues. He has received numerous honours and awards, including Officer of the Order of Canada.
