Mark Berens

Bio

Born a Pisces, creativity is something that has always been present in the life of Mark Berens. Growing up in a very artistic family, he spent a lot of time observing his grandparents painting by the shores of Georgian bay. Introduced to oil paints while studying at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Mark found a medium that suited his style, which has a strong influence from the Group of Seven.

In the years following his schooling at OCAD, Mark found himself lost pursuing editorial illustration work. His style was always changing and his solutions were never satisfying. His skills were focused down the wrong path and a change needed to happen.

With snowboard in hand and oil paints packed he found himself bound for Whistler in the fall of 2002. The scenic drive up the Sea to Sky highway was reason enough for the trek. Once in the mountains, Mark found the spectacular vistas around him his new inspiration to paint. Once you are on top of these mountains there’s truly no more beautiful spot in the world.

Mark now resides in Collingwood, Ontario with his young family.
