Originally from Vancouver, Peter is a graduate of Humber College and spent 2 additional years studying at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where he won a scholarship in 1982, before embarking on a career as a designer and illustrator. He worked on some big accounts and won some awards for his efforts.
In his spare time, and for some commercial work, Peter worked almost entirely with watercolors, but this was before discovering the flexibility of and longevity of painting with acrylics on canvas. He believes that nothing can beat it in terms of durability and ease of use.
Several years ago he decided to focus on his true passion and lifelong goal and committed to painting on a full-time basis. Since then, Peter has seen his work making a big impact, having huge success at the 2007 and 2008 Toronto Art Expo shows, an award at the high caliber Exposition of Art, Montréal in 2007, shows at the Leonardo and Town Square Galleries, and continuing and growing interest in his originals and prints.
Peter is becoming known for his Canadian landscape paintings, but likes to keep things fresh by doing florals, abstract and figurative studies. His work can be recognized by his impressionistic imagery, bold strokes and striking use of color.
His original paintings and limited prints can be found in a growing list of galleries, private collections and corporations across North America.
