About the Artist
David A. Oram is an artist living in Bradford, Ontario, a small town north of Toronto, with his wife and two
children. Although he has had some formal training he is largely self taught, working mainly in acrylics and
watercolors. David’s paintings and limited edition prints hang in many private and corporate collections across
North America and Europe. In 2000 he was commissioned by Canadian Pacific Railway to paint an official portrait
of  their steam locomotive #2816 (titled #2816 on Little Pic River bridge), also know as “The Empress“. His
artwork has appeared in numerous magazines, books and several board games. David and his artwork was also
featured in an episode of the PBS television series Tracks Ahead. In 2008 the City of Toronto reproduced his
painting “A John St. Morning” as a mural on an outside wall at the Toronto Heritage Railway Center. For over 20
years with his passion for placing technically accurate subjects in believable settings, with particular attention to
lightning, shading and texture, he has been recreating history and bring the past to life with his artwork.
