This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist:

Herb Sellin was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta and grew up on a farm near Spirit
River. He has been painting full-time for more than 30 years. He paints landscapes and portraits including a life-size portrait of the former Prime Minister of Canada, the late Rt. Hon. John G. Diefenbaker.

Herb studied advertising at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary, and later studied
painting privately under the late retired former Head, Dr. Stanford Perrott. Specializing in creative Ideas in his final year of art school, Herb immediately became Art Director in Advertising for Eaton's Stores of Alberta for two years, where he won numerous International Awards in advertising.

Searching for an art form more lasting than advertising, Herb began painting full-time. He was greatly influenced by Tom Thompson, the "French Impressionists" and "The Fauves", and his focus is on brilliant color, design and composition, coupled with his often dramatic use of light and shade.

Herb is as well-versed in the fine arts of painting realism and abstraction as well as in designing corporate logos and advertising campaigns. Herb owned and operated "The Herb Sellin Gallery" from 1979 to 1989, which handled his work exclusively.

In addition to his career as an artist and illustrator, Herb enjoys physics and inventing. He lives in Calgary.
