A well known landscape artist, with a stunning collection of artworks. Peter was born in 1946 in Middlesex. On leaving school he went straight into his first job as a studio junior for a card company, where his innate artistic talent was recognised. Here he spent five years studying lettering and design, his first artistic training. This gave him a solid grounding in colour awareness and formal structure which is evident in the Peter Wileman Prints.
Peter then moved on to become art editor on a number of magazines. Above all he tired of the rat-race and set himself up as a freelance illustrator. His years of experience stood him in good stead. Finally, working freelance gave Peter the opportunity to concentrate on his painting. Mainly expressive work inspired by Britain’s coves and harbours, as seen in his signed limited prints.
Over the last six years he has exhibited regularly at a number of prestigious art venues including the Royal Society of Marine Artists, the New England Art Club and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters of which he now holds the position of president.
