Ross Penhall was born in 1959 in West Vancouver, BC. Following graduation
he attended the studio art program at Capilano College and studied printmaking
with internationally renowned print maker and AfK patron Wayne Eastcott. The
strongest influence on his life and art has been living in the high contrast
hillsides of Vancouver’s North Shore with its manicured boulevards and hedges
combined with wild lush rainforest hideaways. He is widely recognized for his
carefully composed and vibrant imagery depicting our intersection with the
land. His stylized forms resonate with inviting spaces regardless of location
and are responsible for his quick rise to fame in recent years. Ross Penhall is
a disciplined and prolific artist who has exhibited annually since 1995. His
work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections in the
United States and in Canada.
