He explains, “Generally, my art has an historical timeline focusing on pre-World War II, before the postwar modernization of the Sixites. I’ve tried to capture some of the more rural, less urban feeling that was more prevalent then.  The cultural and visual strands of the Far East are endless. So, if I can portray a small fiber of the ‘West Meets East’ genre with an acceptable interpretation, I’ll fell that I’ve accomplished something satisfying.”

Having spent more than three years in the Far East, Pete has an intimate knowledge of the people and landscapes there. He has lived in both Japan and Korea and has travelled extensively in China and Southeast Asia, acquiring an appreciation for the art, culture and everyday life of the region. Originally from Chicago, Peter earned a BFA from the University of Illinois and worked for many years as a graphic artist and book designer. Shortly after graduating and moving to Japan, he was afforded the opportunity to study under the Master Woodcut Artist Hiratsuka. This background and training, plus the general influence of other Asian artists inspired and influenced both his style and subject matter.
