A native San Diegan, Grant Pecoff received his formal training at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. He soon realized that his real classroom was the world around him. When I was a child, my father traveled to remote places across the globe, searching for rare plants, Pecoff reminisces, His stories of those experiences were enchanting to me. He taught us to notice life around us and to express our feelings. It encouraged the development of my playfulness and imagination. Pecoff has dedicated himself to traveling the world and finding the limitless inspiration everywhere.

Perhaps it is this expression of our universal similarity and oneness which have created such enthusiasm from collectors near and far for Pecoff's paintings.
