Pete has always drawn and painted. He has had an incredibly varied career from working as a Graphic Designer in advertising to running a restaurant and nightclub!
He is now a full-time artist painting contemporary landscapes of the New Forest and the Hampshire and Dorset Coast. He prefers to work on site using pastels and watercolour to capture the immediacy of the moment, ‘I want to feel the landscape’. Returning to his studio in the New Forest, he uses his spontaneous sketches as reference material for larger canvases in oils or acrylics.
He has exhibited widely in the UK and his work is in many private and public collections.
