Peter Woolley was born in Derby in 1960. He had his first one-man exhibition at the Guildhall in Derby in 1983. After early experimentation with subject and medium, he settled for the pure watercolour style he now employs. He began painting full time in 1986.
Peter’s work is mainly related to his walking expeditions including the Pennine Way, Coast to Coast, Three Peaks and West Highland Way. Peter's original work can be found in private collections throughout the UK and abroad. He also teaches watercolour to beginners and runs weekend courses.
Peter has written and produced Study Packs, CDs, DVDs, a book and has contributed to many books and appears on TV on the Painting and Drawing Channel and contributes to the SAA’s Paint Magazine.
