MEDIUM: Oil Paint | Acrylic Paint
SPECIALTY: ✔ Plein Air
Charlie Easton comes from a family of British artists. He moved to Canada in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the same scenery that inspired many of the Group of Seven.
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 and at Emily Carr University.
His teaching is now in demand and in 2021 he will be on the faculty at the Plein Air Convention in Denver, Colorado.
Charlie has a studio in Vancouver, but his first love is painting on location in BC, Alberta, California and beyond. He has had residencies in Haida Gwaii, with The Haida Nation and Parks Canada, in Banff and in Whistler.
He is a proud brand ambassador for the Canadian outdoor brand MEC who help him get to the remotest places to paint, and keep him dry.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
The closer I can get to my subject – both physically and mentally – the more honest and impactful my paintings are. I want 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.
Optically, I’m fascinated by focus. How the eye and mind latches onto just a few deeply moving elements within a landscape to create a simplified and evocative statement of place.
I try to focus all my energy on capturing these important elements. 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.
