Peter Barker

Spanning the genres of Landscape, Still life and Portraiture. Peter’s paintings take you on a deeper experience, a porthole into a different reality. One of the tenants to Peters process is his quest for continued knowledge. 

This is an ongoing process which has so far taken him from long term study at an art atelier in Florence, Italy. Here he underwent a rigorous technical and art historical background before continuing to train and assist a world renowned master artist in Norway.
