Peter received his BFA from UT Austin in 1978. A move to San Francisco in 1979 opened up a new awareness via access to the city’s museums and its vibrant gallery scene. In 1987 he received his MFA degree in Sculpture from San Jose State University. Peter lived and worked as an artist in the Bay Area for the next 35 years, splitting his time between San Francisco and Blanco, Texas for 16 of those years. Peter’s artwork has been shown and collected in the U.S.A., Europe, and Japan.
