In his own work he investigates how we perceive landscape and environment through a series of different media and strategies including sculpture, video, kinetic art, installation, other time-based media, photography and some writing. He has exhibited his work in a number of galleries, museums and other venues across Canada, the USA, Europe and Korea. He worked and taught in the Los Angeles area for a number of years before moving to Knutsford. The change of scenery has allowed him to indulge more often in some of his other interests including making things, skiing, kayaking, hiking and cycling.
Doug Buis teaches Sculpture, 3-D media, Time-based media and also has taught video, digital media, drawing and subjects.
