Mark Hobson and Esther SampleMark Hobson and Esther Sample

The Maritime Museum of BC is pleased to announce “West Coast Celebration”, the summer art show which features two prominent BC marine artists, Mark Hobson and Esther Sample. David Leverton, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum stated, “We are very fortunate to have such talented marine artists displaying their work during this summer period. Over the past two years we have featured a number of B.C. artists and look forward to continuing to highlight other amazing marine artists in the future.”

About Mark Hobson
Mark has lived and painted in Tofino, B.C. for over 30 years. He was drawn to the outer coast community by the dramatic beauty and variety of the landscape. He is best known for his use of light in his portrayals of the coast and especially for his accurate underwater scenes. To find uninterrupted time to paint Mark travels north from Tofino into the heart of Clayoquot Sound. His floating studio is surrounded by wilderness, offering endless inspiration and the solitude to be creative. Visit the Mark Hobson Gallery for original paintings, limited edition giclées and paper prints. The gallery gift shop includes items such as calendars and art cards as well as block-mounted, matted & framed reproductions.

After graduating from University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree, Ben’s first thought was to go into manufacturing.
