Peter received his formal training at Danforth Technical Institute in a 4 year commercial and fine arts program and at the College of Visual Arts in Kassel, Germany. Sprinkled in throughout his early years, he partook in drawing and painting instruction with Toronto fine artist Timothy A. Phillips, whose studio was often utilized by other artists of subsequent renown...the likes of M. J. Angel, among others, who also provided instruction and influence.
Later, with the realities of earning a living, he was left to hone his talents commercially, with several art houses and agencies in the Toronto area as a graphic designer, illustrator and presentation artist.
These days, as a freelance illustrator since 1989, the bulk of Peter’s bread and butter comes from architectural rendering...all the while and with increasing regularity, he paints away in watercolour and acrylics.
“My early training emphasized the development of drawing and painting. Skills which I embraced as necessary tools, with which I could go off in any direction that inspired me...and there are many. Design, rhythm, colour, eclectic subject, mystery,
majesty, spontaneity are all things that I strive for. Really, anything that will activate the eye with an idiosyncratic style”.
