Peter Foyle

Peter  Foyle

Peter is originally from Dorset and graduated from St. Martin’s in London in 1986 when he was a finalist in the prestigious ‘Readers Digest Young Illustrators Award’. After graduating, he practised as a freelance artist and illustrator until 1990 when he and his wife opened the Framework Gallery in Troon in Ayrshire.

Much of Peter’s work depicts rural life in harbours and villages around the country, although he has been inspired by the buildings and street scenes of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Recent trips to Venice and Provence in France have provided his latest inspiration.

"I see my work as drawings in paint, working quickly and freely across the whole canvas. I try to convey an impression of the atmosphere and light rather than a detailed description of the subject. In particular, I’m inspired by the way light and reflections can play across ordinary objects and familiar places, giving them a fresh beauty".
