Artist and Marine Art Historian.
â€˜USS Constitution Captures HMS Guerriere, 19th Aug. 1812â€™
Peter gave up his surveying career in 1977 to become a full time marine painter.
The â€œMary Rose Trustâ€ and â€œVictoryâ€ museum were both so impressed with Peterâ€™s work that they produced limited edition prints of major paintings, â€œTHE MARY ROSEâ€, â€œVICTORY BREAKING the LINEâ€, and â€œTHE BATTLE of CAPE TRAFALGARâ€™â€™.
Encouraged by Spanish collector Rafael Pedrosa, Peter started work in 1988 on six large oil paintings of Christopher Columbusâ€™s famous Voyage of Discovery to the New World; the final painting was completed in May 1990. This group of paintings combine Peterâ€™s outstanding artistic talent with historical and maritime accuracy. The six paintings are currently on loan to a Museum in Spain with an option to purchase for around one million pounds.
His work is in private collections world wide.
