Brent Heighton

Brent Heighton

Brent Heighton was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1954. At the age of five, his family relocated to a hobby farm in Pitt Meadows, a rural community in the Fraser Valley. At an early age he was known for his humorous drawings.

The family moved to southern Ontario when Brent was in high school. He quickly gained popularity for his knack of doing caricatures of his fellow students. Brent’s art teacher encouraged him recognizing that painting was his great passion.

After high school he worked at various jobs, but always painted landscape and architectural watercolours in his spare time and enrolled in arts courses at Algonquin College. In 1976 he moved back to Vancouver and studied art at Douglas College. At the same time he honed his skill of creating caricatures by setting up shop in Stanley Park along with the other artists at the entrance to the zoo. Here he was also able to sell his paintings, mostly watercolours and some oils.

Brent Heighton has now been painting fulltime for over 30 years. Brent has travelled to Europe, spending time in France, Holland, Belgium, and as far south as Greece. All the time with paints and brushes in hand, he is always looking for that inspiration just around the corner. “The difference of light in a place like Greece compared to Cornwall, England is very exciting” says Brent.

During the last few years Brent has travelled to Mexico numerous times. The architecture, the people, and the light keeps enticing Brent back, “I find Mexico helps my creative juices start to flow when I’m there and I love the colour of the light.” says Brent.

His work has won him numerous awards. He lives with his wife, Bettie, in Surrey, British Columbia. His original paintings can be found at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery
