OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Peter was born in Birmingham and trained at Moseley School of Art and Birmingham College of Art.

His woodcut and linocuts are relief prints. They are made by drawing a design on a block of lino or wood and then cutting away the background with a knife and gouges. The finished block is then inked with a roller and printed in a press.

To make a colour print, a seperate block is cut for each new colour. These are then printed in sequence, one colour over another until the image is complete. By adding a tranparent medium to the ink it is possible to overlay two colours to provide a third.

In his work Peter tries to combine the decorative and the topographical aspects of the landscape subjects to produce a strong image.
