Art has always been a constant presence in Peter’s life. He spent many hours with pencil and paper in hand in homes that smelled of turpentine where his father, a professional artist always had a painting on the go. Peter inherited his father’s passion for art and worked diligently to perfect his craft.

 

In the late ‘70s and early ‘80s Peter became serious with painting on canvas and experimented with numerous genres including nudes, portraits, still life, surrealism and landscapes. His father, frustrated and disappointed by a stalled art career of his own, encouraged Peter to look to a more financially viable use of his skills. As a result Peter studied Architectural/Structural/Civil design at VCC and began a career in commercial art which included scribing maps, producing renderings of future dams for BC Hydro and design of brochures and printed materials with his own design company. In spite of his many successes in this area over the years, Peter never lost his passion for a purer art form and continued experimenting with various media until he settled on oils.

 

He finds inspiration in his love of nature and the beauty to be found in the Canadian landscape. The exquisite detail and interplay between light and shadow invites the viewer to enter the scene and for a moment, lose themselves in the beauty and peace of the natural world.
