Peter is a self-taught artist, born in 1952, raised in Argentina, and currently painting in beautiful Monterey, California.
Peter grew up surrounded by pictures from his family ancestor, painter Peter Bucken (1831-1915) which instilled inspiration for being a painter. “I have always identified with and wanted to be part of the art world. I have enjoyed engaging with artistic friends and exploring galleries and art shows wherever I lived. That is who I am, and what I explore” explains Peter.
As a primary career, Peter selected architecture, attracted to the creativity, art and design elements. Peter was sought after for renderings and presentation drawings in all the design studios he worked. He also lived and traveled extensively exploring architecture and art in South America, Europe and Africa raised a family and served as a volunteer art teacher in elementary school.
In recent years, Peter has refocused on his passion for painting and has experienced an intense outpouring of creativity. The result is a new chapter of life for the artist.Peter reflects, “What has recently flowed from my brush is a mixture of impressionistic places, abstract images, playful contemporary pieces and realism. It is a seemingly endless flow of imagery that expresses itself. I’ve just begun to release a lifetime of painting creativity.”
Today, Peter paints a wide variety of styles, techniques, media, and color palettes in his studio or “in plein air” and is simply enjoying life as a painter..
