Peter Smith was born in Lanarkshire in 1949. He feels that his artistic talents stem from his grandfather, who hailed from Portugal and who painted for most of his life. Smith's early interest in painting and art was matched by a passion for horses, so that as a child he always aspired to being an equestrian artist and his first drawing was of a horse.
He attended the Carlisle and Glasgow Art School and acknowledges that he admires a broad spectrum of artists, taking his inspiration from such diverse masters as Degas and Munnings.
Peter now lives near Ayr, where the open landscape creates a perfect atmosphere in which to find his inspiration.
Peter Smith's original works and limited edition publications are much sought after and his artwork graces art collections worldwide.
