Charlie Easton comes from a family of fine British painters. He moved to Vancouver, Canada, in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the same scenery that inspired many of the Group of Seven artists. Getting outside to paint is a priority for Charlie, as he tries to capture light, colour and movement in all of his pieces. A prolific painter of landscapes and seascapes in both oils and acrylics, Charlie is represented by galleries across North America and Europe. He is on the Board of Directors for the Federation of Canadian Artists and has studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, at Emily Carr University, and at many workshops worldwide. Charlie paints both from his studio in Vancouver and on location around the world. “In my work I invite the viewer to come hiking with me, to ski by my side, and to see the same striking views that enthrall me so much. I paint in a style which mirrors my life motto. Minimum fuss, maximum enjoyment.”
"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 elements in a scene that make it meaningful to me. 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."
