Canadian artist Peter Miehm born in Kitchener, Ontario (1945 - ) studied art and design, and obtained several degrees over the course of several decades.
In between time he worked as a commercial artist, and freelance illustrator in Vancouver. An affiliation with the Warwick Art Gallery allowed him to further develop his painting. He returned to college for an education degree, and then began a career in teaching, becoming a Professor of Design and Visual Arts, at Georgian College, Barrie.
Exhibitions of his work include a 2009 show at the Double Door Studios and Gallery in Anten Mills, Ontario, the Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery and dozens of solo and group exhibitions all over Canada. His preferred medium is gouache on paper, (gouache is a type of paint, and its main appeal is that it is water-based. Other than that, it is very similar to acrylics).
His works do sell well as a living artist with international auctions.
This earlier print of Miehm portrays a small owl perched upon a fragile pine needle branch, after the style of Glen Loates (born 1945 as well) who created this popular style in the 1970's. But since the early 1980's Miehm's mature style with a dramatic, finely detailed background setting took off, being recognized as a saleable artist from fine arts auction houses.
This is a supburb print for those who enjoy birds and wildlife art. Hand signed as a limited edition, 80/300, signature and numbers covered by the olive green matting..
