Peter Walters

Peter Walters is an artist and award winning author/illustrator of children's books, living in North Cornwall, UK. With a background in portraiture, Peter spent his formative years in the US, West Africa and Amsterdam, painting monochromatic oil portraits for commission. A return to the UK coincided with a transition of approach and over the past two years Peter has taken up a new medium of working with digital collage. This merging of traditional illustration with digital art has seen Peter develop an illustration style now captured in print in his 2015 awarding winning children's book, The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea, with Publishers Weekly observing - 'A mix of textures add an eye-catching dimension to Walters’s vibrant collages.' This captivating style is now integral to Peter's popular series of literary inspired artworks, creating one-of-a-kind prints, rich in texture.
