was born in 1951 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, one of eight children of
Russian/German immigrants. Very early in his life he developed an interest
in fine arts and attended art classes, despite advice from relatives
and friends that this was not a secure career choice. Although he preferred
to learn the hard way, by trial and error, he did develop his skills
formally through art studies at the Escuela de Artes Quilmes, Argentina
1966-1967 and a Graphic Design course at the "Famous Artists School
for Talented Young People" in Germany 1969-1971. Not convinced that
the arts could support him in the future, Peter pursued a career in
economics and business management, but painting remained his passion.
Even on his business travels he always found some time to draw sketches
and produce an occasional painting. In early 1996 he gave up his busy
management career to go after his passion and become a full time artist.
He set up his home studio and gallery, "Glenrowan Studios" in Gisborne,
Victoria, near the Macedon Ranges and met with instant success.
