Jerry Markham

Growing up in rural Alberta, Jerry Markham was often exposed to wildlife and nature and has always felt most at home near the mountains and under a big sky. Like most young Canadians, his dream was to be a hockey player, which he pursued along with football, however in high school he also began to draw and paint. Now age 45, he has been painting full-time for over 20 years and currently lives on a ranch in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia with his wife, Leah.

Inspired by his surroundings and travel, Jerry enjoys painting a variety of subject matter including wildlife, landscapes, figures, florals, and the history of the west.

Continually striving to evolve and grow as a painter, Jerry challenges himself by pushing the composition, altering light or color, or experimenting with how the paint is applied. He often uses big brushes and palette knife to apply chunky paint marks, drips, and splatters to render each painting with some abstraction and undefined areas.

“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.”

Jerry’s work has been featured in Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Western Art & Architecture, and International Artist, seen recognition through awards, and can be found in galleries throughout North America. For more details visit jerrymarkham.com.
