Born and raised in Kent, Peter moved to Scotland in 1972 when he was just fourteen. Deeply inspired by the majestic mountains and lochs of the Great Glen, he began painting the striking scenes on his doorstep.
‘Mountains, moors, and lochs, islands, and the wild sea, and of course the endless sky, all have played a major part in the drama of my life.’
Completely self-taught, Peter turned professional in 1982, opening a gallery of his work in the northeast of Scotland. His paintings can now be found in the collections of dozens of countries around the world, from Australia the Americas and he has exhibited in Andorra, Phoenix, and Nagasaki.
Specialising in Scottish landscapes, but equally at home painting Mediterranean scenes, his down to earth view of the natural world continues to enthral his many collectors. Established as one of Scotland’s most popular and successful artists, Peter continues to create new works and exhibits regularly.
