ManMade Art

    Classy nostalgiac art

  • Location: Ottawa, Ontario
  • Established: 2015
“My pieces are often inspired by vintage items, photographs, maps, and so on I've accumulated over the years"

During his childhood, maker Doug Jackson would spend hours with his grandmother painting in oils or drawing in pencil. While his passions began to shift to hockey and other sports as he grew, his love for doodling never quite left his system. After years as a graphic designer and cartographer, Doug let his passions run wild with Manmade Art.

His collection features beautiful prints of sporting teams, cottaging, and Canadian-made inventions, which are all big sellers due to there being a massive void for great art in those genres. Manmade Art is an important figure in the Ottawa maker community, with part of every sale going to fight cancer and heart disease.
