Peter’s professional career as a freelance illustrator was mainly in the field of book jacket, advertising and packaging design. With agents in new York, Hamburg and London, he established himself as one of Europe’s leading illustrators. In 1995 Peter switched careers and established himself as one of Scotland’s foremost landscape painters. Over the last few years a new direction has emerged featuring portraits and the urban environment, and in some works a highly political content is beginning to evolve.
