Peter Taylor is a professional artist working mainly in oils, favouring representational subjects in a loose painterly style. Peter has a great love of vast skyscapes, the sea, coastal scenes, landscapes and woodlands and his work is based on realism but with a modern loose style i.e. paintings that look like paintings not photographs.
Peter has won top prizes for his paintings in mixed juried exhibitions, and has held many one-man shows. He also has work in galleries across the country and in addition to Britain, Peter’s work is in private collections in Italy, Spain, France, New Zealand, America, Australia and Russia.
Peter was, for 3 years, invited to join the “Castles and Clans” painting event in Scotland which involved a week’s plein air painting with a number of top American artists to produce work for an exhibition at a fine art gallery in Colorado.
Peter also featured in “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is” BBC TV programme in 2015.

The Old Bakehouse Gallery on Eshton Terrace, Clitheroe is Peter’s studio gallery i.e. it is a working studio and as such can get “a little untidy” at times. However, there is a large selection of paintings on show. Opening times can vary and it may be better to check if travelling any distance.
