Peter J Wallers
Peter was born in Auckland and educated at Auckland Boys Grammar and later attended Auckland Technical Institute in 1971 - 1972 where he trained as a Graphic Artist.
He has been painting professionally since 1973 and exhibited throughout New Zealand as well as in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Peter takes particular delight at the enjoyment and challenge of painting totally different landscapes.
Peter is mainly self taught and is a dedicated traditional artist. His distinct style has been described as clean, crisp and strong. Painting mainly in oils, but enjoying working in pencil, gouache, chalk pastel and watercolour too, his speciality remains to be landscape and coastal scenes.
His work is included in three art publications, compiled by Denis Robinson; New Zealand's Favourite Artists Vol 2, New Zealand Canvas and Artists Impressions of New Zealand.
Peter Wallers lives and works from his studio in Matua, Tauranga, in The Bay of Plenty. He is a resident artist at the Monterey Art Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand.
