Peter is also a watercolourist with a National and International reputation.

His work in this medium is represented in many public and private collections both in Ireland and abroad.  He paints with confidence and definition - yet he achieves the softness of our misty Irish Landscape through the use of tonal graduation.  Peter’s technique is unique, his colours vivid and brushwork soft - the overall effect is extremely effective.


Exhibiting in The Green Gallery since it's creation 25 years ago Peter has had several sell out exhibitions. His watercolours are in big demand the World over.
