About Me

Peck works collaboratively with other visual artists, exhibiting locally and internationally. His work is held in private, corporate and public collections. Peck also edited and produced anthologies of Canadian Literature as well as assisted in the editing of a Canadian literary journal.

Tidal River Moorage 1

Often the tidal rivers of the West Coast rise and fall miles from the sea. This tidal reach is not only affected by the King tides but in the Anthropocene extreme melts and extreme rain events, creating a zone of unpredictability. Within this zone, in those areas that have not been removed from public access and gated by port and other commercial authorities, there is a vibrant culture of artists, fishers, and those living an alternate lifestyle. Near the cities with critical housing shortages, families have also found refuge in these areas places where they can afford to live and also be close to the cycles of nature.
