Michael Peech is a self-taught artist living in Grafton Ontario.
Working in Acrylics, Oils and various mixed mediums, Peech works to bring together light and colour in varied and unique stylings. Working primarily on canvas, Peech often subtlety adds varied elements to his paintings for texture & chroma.
After a hiatus from painting, Michael has moved from the city to the country to bring new influences and experiences to his paintings. Country living has inspired a new palette and range of subjects for the artist to work with.
Peech’s work has been featured in exhibitions and galleries across the country, and his paintings are in private collections throughout Canada, the USA, and Europe.
"I believe we should never be putting ourselves into one forum or style. All around there is so much going on, everyone and everything is expressing themselves differently and all at once. I can’t put everything into the same box and don’t think you can paint everyone with the same brush."
