Brent Heighton


Born in 1954, Brent Heighton won early acclaim for his masterly control of color and light. His work is sensitive and glowing, revealing an intuitive grasp of the subtleties and breadth of his primary medium, watercolors.

Heighton was raised in British Columbia and Ontario and, following high school, studied art at Algonquin College in Ottawa and Douglas College (now Kwantlen College) in Vancouver. He has been a self-sustaining artist since leaving school and embarking on a brief career in commercial arts.

In 1988, Heighton was named a Master of the Federation of Canadian Artists. He is the youngest artist ever to receive this honor. Today, Heighton works from the studio/home he shares with his wife, Bettie, and daughters, Terri and Julie.
