Bryan Chubb was born in Edmonton and grew up in small towns in Alberta and British Columbia. Self-taught, he began painting in the early 1970's and in 1975 left a position as graphic artist and cartographer with the Canadian Wildlife Service to paint full time. That was soon followed by a solo exhibition at the Edmonton Art Gallery (now Art Gallery of Alberta). Though based in the Edmonton area for 30 years, he has traveled and painted throughout western Canada, and beyond. In 1999, he moved to the Cariboo Region of British Columbia, where he has a home and studio close to lakes, mountains, forests and streams.
