In 1961 he opened Balcome Studios in Sussex, where, apart from his own paintings, he showed work by Freud, Sickert and Matthew Smith amongst others. In the mid-seventies he bought Stanley Studios in Chelsea becoming a key part of the Bohemian Art Scene of the period. Peter himself was a magnificent draughtsman, a skill clearly shown in a long series of exceptional life drawings. His paintings are confidently and strongly coloured, full of energy and cover a wide range of styles and subjects.
