Peter Daglish was an artist born in Gillingham, England, in 1930. He moved to Canada when he was 25 and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal from 1956 to 1960. He then received a Max Beckmann Scholarship to study at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in New York. In 1961, Daglish married Marian Brown in Banff and returned to England to continue his studies at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1963 to 1965.

After his studies, Daglish worked as an art teacher at the Ealing Art College in London and later at the University of Victoria in British Columbia from 1969 to 1971. He returned to London to teach printmaking at the Slade School of Fine Art.

Daglish's artistic career spanned many decades and included painting, printmaking, and drawing. His work was often inspired by his travels and the landscapes he encountered. He was particularly interested in the Canadian wilderness and spent much of his time exploring and painting the rugged landscapes of British Columbia and Alberta.

Daglish passed away in 2017 at the age of 87, leaving behind a legacy of artistic achievement and a deep appreciation for the natural world.
