Peter is largely self taught but has undertaken courses at Central St.Martins and the Putney School of Art and Design. He paints mainly in oils, using a wide range of subject matter, including urban and rural landscapes, domestic interiors, still lifes and people. He obtains his material from his own sketches and photographs but also from the internet and other sources. Some paintings are entirely abstract.
While sometimes painting in precise detail, his aim is not to depict or copy but to manipulate the material through simplification, abstraction and the re-ordering of form, colour and tone to create images which the viewer will find striking, intriguing or moving.
Peter has been exhibiting and selling his work locally fot the past 3 years.
Peter is also a keen amateur musician, with many years experience of playing in orchestras and chamber groups.
