For over forty years, Pete has lived in a beautiful valley with a stream that runs down off Bodmin Moor, through a woodland garden and on towards the river below. He was trained at Bournemouth College of Art and St Paul’s College, Cheltenham; he taught at Launceston College and was Head of Art there until 2001.

The inspiration for most of his work is centred around the moors, valleys and skies of east Cornwall and the nearby presence of two strong lines of earth energy, the St Michael line and the Mary line. Using strong colours with wood, plastic and paper in his bas-reliefs, Pete’s work has been applauded and exhibited widely in Devon and Cornwall as well as at the Circle Gallery in London.
