Peter 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, Oxford, Cambridge, Cardiff, Chichester, Henley-on-Thames etc.).
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, The Royal institute of Oil Painters and Bath Society of Artists.
