Peter is one of Irelands best known watercolourists and print makers. He is a founder member of the Graphic Studio in Dublin and has advised on the setting up of printmaking studios throughout Europe, most recently in Florence.
Peter has exhibited widely at home and abroad. He represented Ireland in a number of international print and watercolour biennial exhibitions
Peter lived for a few years near Glendalough in Co. Wicklow so during his daily painting routine the beauty that is his Garden, the Garden of Ireland, surrounds him.
Peter's Copper Plate Etchings are produced in limited editions. Each etching is designed exclusively by Peter's hands and bears the number of the etching over the total edition number E.g. 50/200 is the 50th of a maximum of 200. Each piece is then signed and titled by the artist. Once the edition has been made the original plate is defaced indicating that the edition is complete.
