Artist Statement

“Having painted in both watercolour and oil paints, the versatility of acrylic has been dominant for the last number of years. I work mostly on large canvases, for the love of the visual impact of size, which can dominate the visual field, and still allows one to get lost in the abstract of texture and details.

Born in Plymouth, England, raised in Toronto, studied at the Ontario College of Art, and for the last twenty-some years residing in rural Grey County in the heart of Niagara Escarpment country has provided me with a wealth of inspiration. My driving force has always been a need to create, in all mediums: wood, stone, plastic, and metal, but mostly in paint. It is much like hunger – the longer it goes without expression, the greater the outpouring of creative energy. My goal is to always grow as a painter, oh and, I guess, as a person as well.”

Workshop Description

Towering rock outcrops?  Clouds, be they stormy or wispy?  Glorious sunsets?  Reflections in water?  Paint your favorite landscape scene under the guidance of an acrylics expert.  Peter will enhance your ability to masterfully use colour, perspective, and  brushwork to bring your artwork to the next level.
