Eddie LePage loves nature. The artist is known for his paintings of the countryside and wildlife. The complex relationship between humanity and nature is often the inspiration for his paintings. LePage’s godmother was First Nations and instilled in him a great love and respect for the natural world that has stuck with him throughout his life. LePage begins his work with an initial idea followed by intensive research. He then ventures out into fields, wetlands, and forests with a camera in hand looking to capture his chosen subject. Once the information has been collected and sketches completed, LePage returns to his studio to begin painting.
A self-taught artist, LePage has used his painting practice to reflect upon and document the natural world around him for over 40 years. His work has been exhibited in Vancouver, Calgary, Hamilton, Toronto, Burlington Peterborough, and the East Coast. LePage has participated in many regional studio tours and his work can be found in collections across Canada and Germany, France, Britain, Japan, Australia, South Africa, and the United States.
