Born on the outskirts of Ottawa during the 50's, Peter showed a talent for drawing at an early age. Although tempted by a career in art, Peter choose instead to attend the University of Waterloo, graduating with a degree in mathematics. Peter continued his interest in art by attending various classes and workshops, most notably the Ottawa School of Art.  After experimenting with various types of media, including pastel, watercolour and oils, Peter finally settled on acrylics.

He is an elected member of several societies including the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA), the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC) and, recently, the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA).

Now retired, Peter has begun to develop his skills as a professional. He has gained representation in several galleries and is continuing to grow as an artist.
