wyse-portrait
PETER WYSE was born in 1970 (The Year of the Dog) in Kamloops, British Columbia. He works from his home studio in the historic village of Clayburn, 75 km east of Vancouver. Peter shares this charming space with his wife, son, and of course, Chilco the Wonder Dog.

Peter was introduced to art at an early age through his grandfather, who schooled him in the practice of painting and the discipline required of an artist. He later studied art history and fine arts at the University of British Columbia. Four years after receiving his degree, his grandfather suggested, “Time to quit your day job!” This encouragement has led to successful solo and group exhibitions in B.C., Alberta and Washington State. His work is now featured in private collections throughout the world.

Peter has worked with a range of mediums, but he now paints exclusively with acrylics. Insatiably curious, he takes great delight in the mundane, using his unique style of layering and sanding flat coats of paint to reveal how the ordinary can become extraordinary.
