Amy Shackleton is now one of the highest selling artists in Canada. Since submitting to the Fleck Fine Art Catalogue back in 2009, Amy has reached mid-career status! She has had a significant number of sell out solo exhibitions at the Elaine Fleck Gallery, which placed her work in an impressive number of private and corporate collections. Amy has received regional, national and international recognition through an array of art media. To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, Amy Shackleton has completed her most ambitious project to date. “THE GREAT CANADIAN LEED-SCAPE”, is a 53 foot long painting, (thirteen panels, one for every province and territory). It celebrates the best in sustainable urban planning, from sunrise to sunset, across this great land. Elaine Fleck has organized exhibitions of this masterpiece in several public galleries across Canada in 2017, including Ms. Shackleton’s first museum exhibition.

Through the Elaine Fleck Gallery, Lloyd’s art has been featured on the TV show Suits and The Strain III and has been the featured artwork on trailers for both shows! His cutting edge, photography based, digital composites, have been placed in incredible collections.
