Painter, printmaker, and musician; Michael’s life is full of the creative process. His work is an exploration of unique ways of seeing the world. From the beautiful to the banal, his paintings and prints lead him to seek that one angle that gives each moment it’s particular voice. Colourful, textural works emerge with the goal of anchoring the viewer in a moment and seeing what they haven’t seen before. Primarily oil on canvas and block prints, Hepher works with unique colour schemes and layers of texture bring out the emotion of a landscape.
A professional artist in various mediums for almost 20 years, Michael has found his stride in Fernie after opening Clawhammer Press, a vintage printing studio, and focusing his work on painting and printmaking. His works have been sold to customers all over the world from the gallery here, and a variety of galleries and exhibitions across Western Canada, the USA, and the UK.
Michael currently lives with his family in Fernie, British Columbia.
