The artist graduated from the Ontario College of Art and worked for many years as an industrial and corporate designer. It was in the late 60’s when he started to paint. When an opportunity was presented to him to join a scientific expedition to travel the Artic to document the wildlife of the area.
The stye of painting that brought international recognition to Lumbers all started on a summer afternoon. When sketching an abandoned house on an island in the Georgian Bay, he found a diary with some photo negatives tucked inside it. Some months later, he printed these negatives and found that someone had photograhed the family sitting on the same porch as in his sketch. The diary documented the pictures were taken in 1913. It was this event that launched a series of paintings that is still ongoing and called “Moments in Time”.
