Peter studied painting and printmaking at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts & The (then titled) Philadelphia College of Art both in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA.

He’s been involved in the creative world since leaving Art college in 1987, selling paintings privately and commercially, mainly on commission.

In the early  1990’s he became involved in the antiques trade, his passion for fine & decorative antiques has made him a regular exhibitor at The Decorative fair in Battersea Park, Olympia & LAPADA Berkeley Square.

For over 25 years Peter has been producing Fine art paintings and murals for clients all over the world. Popular themes have included: Still life paintings, Murals and limited editions.

Whilst his training is in traditional oil painting and printmaking, much of his work in the period 2005 – 2010 was made up of part digital, part traditional media – designed on the mac and printed/transfer printed onto different surfaces including paper, canvas, wood and ceramic.

Peter’s experimentations with digital art have  brought him full circle and he now works in a more traditional manner. Still life is still his main output,
