Peter was born in 1942 and since 1973 has been living on the Scottish Borders. He is an artist who has the ability to portray the mystique of seafaring history. The ships, spars and busy quaysides of the past are exquisitely captured by his talent with pen and brush. As artist - tutor to the college of the Sea, and lecturer on art at Norwich he has painted world wide on board ships. After several successful exhibitions his reputation has widened and collectors, both public and private, have purchased his work including the National Maritime Museum and Marine Society.
In this exhibition Peter reflects back into history through his imagination and his own personal experiences to create a collage of peoples associated with the sea, their social pursuits, and the vessels in which they worked from the times of Admiral Collingwood.
Peters sea faring knowledge comes through in each piece and his love of the subject can be seen in all of his representations.
