Peter was educated as a botanical scientist and having studied at University in Bangor he fell in love with North Wales and was to spend the next 25 years there as a strawberry grower. During all this time, however, he continued to paint. He was taught to paint initially by his headmaster and encouraged further by his aunts, all of whom were painters. He spent many happy hours painting in his aunt’s studio in Saint-Rémy Provence and it was here, steeped in the romanticism of the Impressionists, that he learnt to paint the Camargue with an uninhibited freedom brought on, not least, by an early introduction to pastis!
Peter’s subject matter is drawn from what matters most to him; his family and friends, the changing seasons and the shift of light on the sky, sea and landscape that surrounds him.
