Autumn Sisters by Patrick Markle

If you have been to any of Fernie’s many art organizations or events, there is a good chance you have seen Andrew Markle’s work.

His unique style, with his use of vivid colours and crisp lines, make his pieces very distinguishable from that of others and demands attention.

Markle’s love of landscape stemmed from an early age and led him to attend Lakehead University where he graduated with an Honours Bachelors of Fine Art.  After he finished school, luckily for us, he moved to B.C. and eventually he settled here in Fernie where he has been for the past eight years.

“The Divide” is a representation of his work which offer a more design focused composition and is striving for ‘representational objects rather than traditional finished images.’

Join Patrick Markle at The Arts Station on Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. where he will introduce his inspiring work that will be on display until the end of April.
