Peter is a self taught artist born in the mining town of Ashington in 1968. He moved to the village of Ellington aged 9 and stayed there until a recent move to Newcastle.
Peter’s love of art goes all the way back to his childhood and a pencil was never far from his side growing up, more recently peter has been able to turn his love of art into an occupation with his work now being sold all over the country in many well established galleries.
Peter started out working in pencil and explored all the mediums as he progressed until settling on the oil paintings he currently produces.
‘My work is inspired by the things we did and saw whilst playing out in the back lanes and streets as kids, heavy with nostalgia, a little bit of fun and hopefully seeing the beauty in the everyday things that surrounded me. My work takes me back to a much simpler and innocent time.’
