Peter was born in Reading and now lives in his adopted home of Bath with his wife, Lisa, and their five children.
He first came to Bath for a year in 1986 to study an art foundation course. He went on to graduate from Manchester Polytechnic, returning to the city in 1993. Inspired by the architecture and life of the town, he has become a familiar figure painting the city’s streets as well as in all the other cities and towns in which he now works (such as London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge & Cardiff).
He rarely paints in the studio preferring to work directly from the subject on site in sometimes the foulest of weathers. He works in charcoal, oil and pastel for which he has received numerous awards at various national exhibitions.
He is a member of The New English Art Club, The Pastel Society and The Royal institute of Oil Painters. Proof of his ever widening reputation is supplied by his one-man exhibitions in London and Bath which generally sell out within days of opening.
In 2006 Peter was invited to be the first Artist in Residence at The Savoy Hotel.
