After years of appalling high school grades, Peter's mother, a successful artist in her own right, had the good sense and foresight to sign him up for life drawing classes.
Around the same time, a renegade group of Australian art school tutors caught up in a scandal after one of them stripped off during a student lecture opened a small art school in Far North Queensland just south of where Peter’s family lived at the time.
Armed with his average grades and a portfolio of naked lady sketches, Peter enrolled at the school and so began a creative journey that has seen him work as an illustrator, artist, award winning advertising creative and screenwriter.
Peter has written and directed short films and is obsessed with combining his storytelling abilities with his art practice. His current project "Hallelujah, I'm a bum!' explores civil unrest and protest in New Zealand during the Great Depression.
Peter is a Unison Colour Associate Artist (a U.K. based soft pastel company) and currently resides in the New Zealand bush west of Auckland.
