Peter obsessed over drawing and painting for decades and then studied with some of the best living American painters of our time (Steven Assael, Vincent Desiderio, Margaret Bowland, William Whitaker, Nicola Verlato, and so many more!). He’s worked with several galleries in the US and was just recently in a group show of compelling woodland works!
Now you can benefit from his learned lessons and apply them to yourself.
