Born in Broken Hill in June 1949, Peter loved to draw and paint - even as a child. Leaving a banking career at the age of 21 he worked in the mines at Mt. Isa where the people and the harsh outback life inspired him to pursue a full-time career in painting. At this time he travelled overseas to study the great European Masters.
"Romantic Impressionism" is Peter's description of his approach to painting. His unique style softens the Australia he loves so well, but being a self taught artist has enabled him to approach the Australian landscape and its people with a refreshing individuality. His treatment of light and its effect on form is all important in his paintings.
Public acceptance of Peter's work was immediate and far reaching in Australia. Collectors from all states have acquired his paintings, as have collectors from England, Saudi Arabia, Germany, France, New Zealand and the United States.
He has been painting professionally for over 30 years and during this time has had many successful individual and group shows and has received many prestigious art awards.
Peter is an exhibiting Member of the Royal Art Society of NSW.
