In 2000, following a highly varied business and personal life, Pete decide to focus on his painting. The previous 42 years encompassed (in no particular order) graphic and creative design for others and with his own agency, motorcycling around Europe and North Africa, owning a restaurant and then a night club, hitch hiking across America, renovating a derelict property in the New Forest which is still his home and studio, and, of course, being an artist.
Since turning professional Pete has had his work in numerous exhibitions (winning a number of awards) and has received commissions from private collectors, businesses and public bodies. He also tutors in the South of France each summer.
Pete regularly takes his paints and pastels with him to work on the spot in order to capture the immediacy of his subject.All Artists
