Meet the artist & maker

After graduating from Leeds College of Art in 1969 with little prospect of employment, Peter began work with the London Contemporary Dance Theatre and a whole new career path of prop-making and setworks opened up which continued through mainstream theatre with the RSC and commercial figurative sculpture for the museum and leisure industry. In 2005 Peter left full time employment to develop his own unique approach to figurative sculpture.
