In 2010 they moved to Waiheke Island where they live with their daughter Eva.

Peter has worked as a professional artist and photographer based in the UK and he ran his own gallery and has taught fine arts and photography. HIs work has included drawing, printmaking, painting and photography.

Peter now concentrates on producing and exhibiting his own work

“The experience of sailing, tramping and being in the landscape is fundamental to the way I approach drawing, painting and photography. The dramatic contrasts in light and atmosphere created in mountain and coastal environments have drawn me to travelling and working in these areas”
