Peter Valentine

Born in Chester, Peter moved to Liverpool when he was 5, his mother bought him his first set of oil paints when he was just 10 and he hasn’t stopped painting since! Completing his art degree at Liverpool Art College alongside fellow pupils Marc Almond and comedian Alexei Sayle.

Painting and tutoring has taken up most of his waking hours. “It’s all encompassing” he says, “true artists are obsessive and they paint and draw all the time. I paint because that’s all I want to do ! ”

We love his enchanting, fantasy inspired, quirky work, always executed in bold bright oils. “Curious and curiouser” the epitome of the brilliant/mad/genius artist. Images to make you smile
