Peter Smith

Peter Smith collection

Born in the small town of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire Peter's earliest memory is of a small book of black and white illustrations called 'The Magic Painter' that came with a paintbrush but no paints - you 'painted' the pages with water and the colours magically appeared, he was hooked! Over the years many things added to his artistic development, a few years as a surveyor gave accuracy, a computer programmer added a methodical approach and a graphic artist in the fashion industry gave him an understanding of colour and composition. Two years ago he decided to return seriously back to painting and the passion was still there - brighter and more overpowering than before.
