Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Peter’s first exposure to art was thru 1960’s television art instructor Jon Gnagy. In due course, he graduated from the University of Waterloo with a bachelors degree in mathematics. After a successful and rewarding career as a software engineer, he has since retired to paint full time. Always a serious amateur, he has consistently developed his painting and figurative skills through his studies at the Ottawa School of Art and local artists groups.
