Over 43 years in fine art Peter finds endless amounts of inspiration for his paintings from this ever changing region, it’s wonderful luminous light and capturing the special moments that people can relate to on their journeys to this amazing place.
Working from his Margaret River Studio of Fine Art Gallery and Studio which is situated in a Jarrah and Marri Forrest just ten minutes to the west of the town of Margaret River he has developed a style showing influences of the Impressionists and his inspiration comes from subjects that surround him, recently Peter has changed his painting style further by incorporating the use of Palette knives, a variety of mediums and strong colour, applying heavier textural applications and more defined directional strokes it allows the light to bounce and reflect in a far stronger and more emotive way, truly expressing the amazing changing lights and atmospheres of this wonderful region.

Peter was born in 1955 in Bunbury, Western Australia, moving to Perth at the age of fifteen he met his future wife Mari when he was just eighteen and they were married when he was twenty, Mari fully supported the difficult journey that an Artist has to take for this craft.
Around this same time he met Gillian Aitken another skilled artist and he studied in great depth the techniques and application of painting from skills she had learnt studding at the Royal Academy in London and also another brilliant artist from South Africa Mark Philips who influenced him in ways and appreciation and application of the atmospheric effect that light has in paintings, Peter currently lives in Margaret River with his wife Mari.

Completing a Diploma in Graphic Design in 1974 and working in advertising and Furniture manufacturing, Peter Scott gave up his employment in 1992 to become a full time visual artist and has been teaching these same skills to other Artists and exhibiting ever since.
Peter's work was has featured in 17 Solo and 26 Joint Exhibitions, he has won thirty five prizes and awards, these includes first prize in the WA Society of Art, Pastel Society of WA and has been selected three times in the ANL Maritime Art Prize and Exhibition - a national touring award and his paintings are represented in private collections worldwide.

Being an Artist is such a special gift, to have the time and the ability be able to appreciate this wonderful world that surrounds us if we just take the time to look and to appetite it’s beauty.
