Mark Fletcher has travelled extensively throughout Canada and other countries. His experiences have led to a rich array of paintings. “It is natural for me to tell stories and to express my experiences visually. To do this requires more than just seeing a subject. It requires that I live it, be part of it, and connect with it. Each painting tells a story, related to experiences like drawing pay as a hired hand in central Alberta or taking shelter in abandoned coastal villages of Newfoundland. Through colour and line, I bring you pieces of your land, my experiences, our story.”
Mark is also a highly accomplished Celtic/folk musician who plays guitars, mandolin, 5-string banjo, short neck bouzouki, Irish flute, Irish whistles, accordion, bodhran, Scottish smallpipes, Highland bagpipes, Welsh pibgyrn, keyboards and — last but not least! — various percussion instruments.
