PETER FOYLE is originally from Dorset. He studied at St Martin's, London, graduating in 1986. He practised as a freelance artist and illustrator till 1990 when he moved with his wife to Ayrshire and established a Gallery.
Much of Peter’s work depicts rural life in harbours and villages around the country, but he has recently been inspired by the buildings and street scenes of Glasgow and Edinburgh where his ability to capture light - often on wet days - results in rich vibrant paintings.
“I see my work as drawings in paint, working quickly and freely across the whole canvas. I try to convey an impression of the atmosphere and light rather than a detailed description of the subject. In particular, I’m inspired by the way light and reflections can play across ordinary objects and familiar places, giving them a fresh beauty.”
