Peter was born in 1937. He studied at Middlesbrough School of Art and St. Martin’s, London, where he taught in the late 60′s; also at Sheffield Art School.

Between 1965–90 Peter had ten one man shows with the Piccadilly Gallery and has exhibited in Bologna, Milan, Brussels, Hamburg, Ibiza, Baden Baden and Dublin. He took part in The British Council Touring Exhibition in 1989/90 which travelled to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Harare.

Peter also designed sets and costumes for the Royal Ballet Company between 1967– 70.

He and his wife and three children moved to Ibiza in ’71 and lived there for many years – returning to London and Norfolk in 1990. They returned to Ibiza in 2002 for eight years and are now living in Norfolk.
