first visit to the Canadian Arctic was in 1926-27 when
he lived at Pangnirtung, Baffin Island for a year surveying
and mapping. In the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's he painted
farther and farther north, recording his impressions
of the vast land and its history.
He visited and painted many remote
locations, historic sites and scientific research camps
including the North Pole, traveling by air and by Ice
The North was his favourite place to
be and his favourite place to paint. Haycock was not
back South for long before his next trip was well on
the way to being planned.
