peter foyle - original paintings

small paintings

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 worked as a freelance artist and illustrator until 1990, when he and his wife opened The Framework Gallery in Troon.

Much of Peter's work depicts rural life in harbours and villages around the country but he has recently been inspired by cityscapes, often capturing the buildings and street scenes of Glasgow. Peter has now produced a wonderful collection of Edinburgh scenes exclusively for Morningside Gallery.

His ability to capture light results in rich, vibrant paintings, which seem to 'shimmer' - these are tremendously inspired works, which capture the city's everyday scenes with great skill and glorious colour.
