After twenty-one years employed as a cartographic draughtsman, Peter changed career to that of a full time greeting card artist.
His first employment as an illustrator was with Carte Blanche Greetings. After three years he went to work as an artist for Hallmark.
He was there for five years before setting up his own studio to provide a greeting card illustration and copywriting service for Simon Elvin,
Nigel Quiney, Paperlink, Wishing Well Studios, Moonpig and UK Greetings.
He now paints full time as an artist, concentrating on the naive style, for which he is well known.
The main aim of his oil paintings is to produce a feel good factor.
Illustrating warm summer days at the seaside is a great way to achieve this as a lot of people will have fond memories of days spent at the beach
and hopefully his paintings will remind them. A feature of his style is the crowds of people, painted in strong, bright oil colours.
