Mark Hope Artist Statement

Artist at Large

 Mark Hope Artist Statement and Bio.


I have always been an observer.  I can trace my fascination with observing nature to my very early  exposure to camping with my family. Those camping experiences have given methe opportunity to live through my senses.  I express what my senses encounter through painting. I count myself lucky

 to have a skill that allows such expression.  

   I am an Impressionist oil painter after the 19th century French Impressionists and the Canadian Group of Seven and Tom Thomson.  I explore light, form and colour that nature provides.  My subjects run from traditional landscapes to the less obvious subjects I find in my travels.  I

 am largely self taught.  I also teach beginner and intermediate oil painting.
