Get On Board! Monthly Member Profile: David Borrowman

David BorrowmanDavid Borrowman is a full-time photographer now, recording images of artists digitally, but that is only part of his interesting life. Born in Regina, he always had a camera in his hands, but photography was not his first profession. After university and graduate school at Carleton, he entered the Canadian diplomatic service, where he served in Belgrade, among others places, from 1973 to 1984.

Thereafter, David traveled and came to Salt Spring in 1986, where he became a glass blower and opened a photo shop which he ran from 1992 until 1996.

David has been very much involved in political activities, having served two terms on the Islands Trust, until 2002, and also chairing the Trust Fund Board, which holds land assets for the Trust. He presently sits on the Industrial Advisory Group of the Islands Trust; we can await a report soon to appear.

An artist, politically savvy, and a great colleague: what more can ArtSpring ask for? David Borrowman brings his talent and his enthusiasm to the Artspring Board of Directors.

    I wonder if Mr. Borrowman ever worked as a teacher in a little island in the Caribbean called Carriacou in 1969. If he did I would be very interested in getting in touch with him as we were great friends back then. If in fact he did, I would be very grateful if you would pass on my email address to him. If not, then I apologise for being a nuisance.
