Charlie Easton comes from a family of fine British artists. He moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the same iconic scenery that has inspired so many of the great outdoor artists. A prolific painter of landscapes and seascapes in both oils and acrylics, Charlie is represented by galleries across North America and Europe where he regularly has solo exhibitions of his work. He is a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and has studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, at Emily Carr University in Vancouver, and at many workshops worldwide. Charlie has a studio in Vancouver, but his first love is painting on location in Canada, Mexico, the US and beyond. He has had residencies in Haida Gwaii, with The Haida Nation and Parks Canada, in Banff and in Whistler. “In my work I invite the viewer to come hiking with me, to ski by my side, and to see the same stunning views that get me so excited to be alive! I try to focus all my energy on capturing the most important elements in a scene. Expending energy on anything that gets in the way of the story just isn’t worth it. I paint in a style which mirrors my life motto. Maximum fun, minimum fuss.”
