About the Artist

Photographer Peter Blanchard grew up in Eugene, Oregon and has been living in Portland since 1999. After earning his Bachelor of Arts from Lewis & Clark College in 2003, he studied at Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland Community College, and the Multnomah Arts Center. Blanchard has been recognized for his work as a photographer by such publications as The Grove Review and The Portland Business Journal, and he has won both local and national awards for his photography.

One of Blanchard’s primary goals as an artist is to bring the healing power of natural beauty into the world of city living. While he enjoys and appreciates all that city life has to offer, Blanchard has observed that city-dwellers often miss out on the mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits conferred by natural beauty. He sees this as especially important in places of healing and recovery, such as clinics and hospitals, where a beautiful image might make the difference between a scary or stressful environment and a calming space in which to heal. As an artist, one of Blanchard’s primary goals is to realize his vision that city life and natural beauty should not be mutually exclusive.

From early on, Blanchard has sought out alternatives to the standard print-behind-glass approach to displaying photography. After focusing on giclée canvas prints for several years, he has switched to a medium that employs thermal process to infuse his photography directly onto sheets of aluminum, one that provides a uniquely durable product with a vibrant and modern aesthetic.
