William Weston

1879 - 1967


Born (1879) and trained in London, England, William P. Weston settled in British Columbia, Canada in 1909 and took the position of art teacher at King Edward High School. He continued to teach until his retirement in 1946 and thus did not rely on painting as his primary source of income. Weston was a member of several groups and associations including the Royal Canadian Academy, the Canadian Group of Painters (formerly the Group of Seven), and the British Columbia Society of Fine Artists. Considered rather innovative at the time, Weston's interpretation of the BC landscape was imaginative and had a strong sense of style and vitality.
