Peter maintains an architectural office and art studio on Bald Head Island, NC. and Charleston, SC. His formal training included a masters degree at Washington University that resulted in an architectural

practice of over thirty five

years. After school a much

more extensive informal

education carried him around

the world sketching and

painting to document spaces and ideas he encountered. These studies eventually took on their own life and energy bringing him to the studio where he now resides.

Peter’s work derives its energy from a process of crossing concentrations, using oils, ink sketches, and architecture to inform and enhance each other. His compositions and perspectives seek to create settings for memories that have not yet happened or stories that are about to unfold. The spirit of these images stay unreal in the vibrant colors of his paintings and loose lines of his sketches.  Peter’s artistic interests in painting and sketching capture a wide range of subject matter from landscapes, figurative work, and travel studies.
