JERRY MARKHAM enjoys painting a variety of subject matter including landscapes, figures, urban scenes, and anything that captures his interest. Painting for him is not so much about the subject as what draws and inspires him to paint each piece and how it is expressed.

Always the consummate student, he continually strives to evolve and grow as a painter, often tackling subject matter that challenges him, whether by pushing the composition, altering light or color, or experimenting with how the paint is applied.

“I want to capture the essence of a subject more than the specifics. If the work is loose and a bit undone, there is more room for the viewer to interpret, to access the painting through their own imaginings.”

Markham, age 37, has been painting full-time for over 12 years. He currently lives in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia with his wife Leah.

Jerry’s work has been featured in Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Western Art & Architecture and International Artist.
