Shawnigan Lake School

Released 2016

This stunning representation of the main building and forecourt of Shawnigan Lake School was painted by Mark to commemorate the centennial year. Mark completed his final years of schooling at Shawnigan, graduating in 1970. Once he finished his Bachelor degree at the University of Victoria he went back to teach sciences at Shawnigan and ran the school's outdoors program.

Mark has fond memories of his time there as a student and 9 years as a staff member, so he was delighted to donate this piece to the school. A special edition of 100 giclée prints have been created with a portion of all sales to be donated back to Shawnigan Lake School.

Order Note: This print will have a special discount applied and is not subject to complimentary shipping.

MARK HOBSON lives in Tofino, B.C. Canada on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island, where he has painted professionally for over thirty years. Born in Vancouver in 1953 he grew up in various parts of B.C. alternating with living around the world in locations as far flung as Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Portugal. His teenage years were spent in boarding schools, including two years in Northern Ireland. Drawing almost every day in his early years he gradually taught himself skills in watercolour, oils, and acrylics. Mark is best known for his passionate portrayals of the wildlife and landscapes of the Canadian Pacific coast. From pounding surf to misty coves, from rain forests to the underwater realm the careful use of light is always present enhancing subtle drama in his work. Professionally trained as a biologist, he taught high school science for nine years before devoting his career full time to painting.
