Since 2003, much of Bruce's work has been done en plein air or, literally, outside in the open air, and usually in one session. While still preferring to paint from life, he plans on balancing his schedule with more studio work in the future. From his belief in the value of direct painting, Bruce founded Plein Air Painters of New Brunswick in 2011 as a way of furthering the practice of outdoor painting in his region.


Bruce's primary influence has been Richard Schmid and he has studied his work thoroughly. He has also worked several times with Albert Handell in workshops and mentorship programs and developed a deep fondness and respect for Albert. Bruce has studied with two other artists whom he admires a great deal, Marc Hanson and Jennifer McChristian.


Bruce participates in plein air festivals and numerous group exhibitions. He has also had eight solo exhibitions and his work is held in private collections across North America and Europe. Bruce is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and a juried member of Oil Painters of America.


He is also a former golf professional and amateur champion and paints memorable golf holes of Atlantic Canada. He offers framed, signed and numbered limited-edition Giclée reproductions which can be found on his website. Bruce and his wife, Helen Jean, have two daughters and three grandchildren and live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
