Canadian landscape artist Patrick Markle grew up in the Kawartha Lakes Region of Southern Ontario. Living in cottage country gave Markle an appreciation for the Canadian wilderness at an early age. His love of landscape, lead the artist to the western shores of Lake Superior where he attended Lakehead University. After graduating with an Honours Bachelors of Fine Art, Markle moved West and has since settled in Fernie BC where he has been painting for the past fifteen years.
Patrick is inspired by experiences in the wilderness. His work focuses on the rhythm of nature and capturing fleeting moments of beauty. Markles work remains true to line and form to keep specific locations recognizable and accurate. He then adds his own flowing style to express the grandeur and beauty of the natural world. It’s with this rhythmic style and heightened colours that Markle creates paintings that are very dramatic and powerful.
