Blair is a self directed artist with his formal art education being in grade school. He received art awards in grades 9 and 12 and has only expanded with his artistic passion through experimentation and perseverance.

Blair’s first exhibits were group shows in North Eastern B.C. in the mid 1990’s.  After moving to the Yukon, he took part in several Yukon Art Society’s group Exhibitions. 

Blair’s first solo shows in December 2008 and September 2009 introduced “All Over the Map”, an exhibition of northern images rendered in watercolour on topographic maps.  Blair’s most recent work was displayed at Arts Underground exhibited throughout April 2016. The exhibition featured his signature work on maps as well as showcasing his copper tooling work.
