Artist Bio:

Peter has been creating objects most of his life and since recently retiring, decided to share some of his crazy ideas with a wider audience than immediate family and friends.

Wood is his material of choice, although he has cast bronzes from wax and wants to do more with rock sculptures. He enjoys seeing people want to touch the creations because it indicates a 'connection' has been communicated.

Before he married, he was a manufacturing jeweller, started a family, had a corporate career, launched new computer products, and eventually ended up in Education as a Senior Lecturer at AUT. He moved to Snells Beach a year ago and has finally set up a workshop where magic happens.
