Artist Profile

Peter Hill was born in Tonbridge, Kent in 1965 and as a child moved to Sheffield, on the edge of the Peak District. He draws heavily on the extraordinary landscapes that surround his National Park Galleries in Derbyshire and the Lake District.


The mountains, rocky edges, serene watersides and ever-changing skies provide an endless supply of subject matter. However, as a seasoned traveller, his sources may just as likely have imposing metropolitan themes of international origins from as far away as the USA or the Far East.


Peter's work continues the long tradition of artists in their creative ambition to capture nature's dramatic forms, gentle reflections and quixotic qualities of light. This constant endeavour is also applied to bold cityscapes that feature frequently in his repertoire. Working in oil on canvas he has developed a vibrant, contemporary style that pays homage to past masters such as Turner, and those of the impressionist movement, but uses a pallet of colours that is definitely of the 21st century.


His technique of 'washing' the raw oil paint on the canvas with white spirit gives a surprising light effect and provides the basis for his signature, free-flowing runs of form and colour combination. Spanning the two camps of realism and abstraction, surface texture combines with an energy and fluidity of execution.


This spontaneous style of working requires courage, quick reactions and an intuitive response to the movements of the medium. Over the years, Peter's free flowing style has created a loyal following of collectors.
