Michael McEwing was born in Campbellton, New Brunswick in 1973. He grew up in Fredericton, where he first developed an interest in art at a very young age. Today, he works as an artist in a variety of different mediums, including oil painting, intaglio and relief printmaking and mixed media.
After successfully completing the first year of Mount Allison Universitys Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) programme in 1993, McEwing decided to transfer to an Art Education programme at the University of New Brusnwick. He graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree, majoring in Secondary Arts (Fine Arts) and minoring in English.
A growing interest in the educational possiblities of the Internet led McEwing to seek employment in the e-Learning sector of the Information Technology industry. During this time, he continued to pursue part-time studies at the University of New Brunswick and in 2000 he received a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in Multimedia Studies. Michael completed his degree requirements at Mount Allison University and received his BFA in the spring of 2006.
Michael McEwing continues to deal with technological themes in some of his printmaking and mixed media works. His painting typically deals with narrative, figurative and landscape subject matter.
McEwing has recently exhibited his works in various solo and group exhibitions in Fredericton, Hartland and here at Fog Forest Gallery.
