Peter’s formal art education began at age thirteen at Twickenham School of Art, a distinction was gained in illustration and graphics, and work commenced at a small studio off Tottenham Court Road. It was here that a life long friendship started with another ex Twickenham student ‘Ken Dallison’. They both were graphic designers for London agencies, before going freelance and working together with work for Ford on the105E Anglia and the MkII Zephyr convertibles, as well as Ford they were doing work with Massey Fergusson agricultural machines. Eventually a break was needed, Ken went back to New York and Peter started a 2 year pan European ad campaign for Ford Europe, work followed from Aston Martin, Vauxhall, Honda, International Harvester and Shell Aviation, the Shell drawings went on a world exhibition staged by I.A.T.A while the Honda illustrations led to a commission to do perspective drawings for the fledgling Milton Keynes, with this came a change of direction from advertising illustration to architectural illustration, that was 30 years ago and much work followed with BDP. Peter is still being asked to help on projects having just finished five illustrations for BDP on St. James Edinburgh, the historic towns and cities still like a hand rendered illustration over a computer generated one. In 2001 Peter ventured back to car art producing an on going series of collector’s cards and prints featuring just a race car with emphasis on the engine, with part of the illustration left in line only giving a very graphic presentation of the subject.
