Gregorio Perez is a Michigan native and multi-media artist working in relief printmaking, pottery, drawing, painting, photography, wood and concrete. Perez's vision was formed by the study of wabi sabi; an aesthetic based on imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness. In a world full of glitter and clutter Perez chooses to focus on simplicity and austere elegance in his work.
Perez taught adult education courses in printmaking at Community Arts of Tecumseh. He currently teaches drawing, painting and printmaking at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Twin Lakes, MI.
Perez graduated from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Western Michigan University with degrees in Industrial Design and Art.
Perez donated much of his early work to the River Raisin Watershed Council (RRWC) who partnered with the Clinton Art Center (CAC) in Clinton, MI. This work can be purchased through the CAC. Proceeds help support the RRWC.
Perez has worked 23 years in law enforcement and plans to retire in March of 2019. Quiet Heron Studio sales will begin shortly thereafter.
