Biography

Peter Sargent is an artist with versatility -- a result of his background as a practicing architect and journalist.

Architects learn to draw quickly and accurately and to interpret their clients’ wishes and aspirations. So do artists – especially if they specialize in assessing and revealing the character of their subject – be it a portrait of a favorite home, a beloved child or pet or even a vintage car or boat.

Architects also understand three dimensional form – which is why when he is not wielding a pencil, Peter is carving his abstract wood sculptures. There again, he is trying to reveal character by exposing the grain and the color of the wood through to its final form.

Born and educated in the North of England then running his architectural practice in London, he now lives in Southwest Florida devoting his time to his artwork.

He produces art for sale – graphic black and white, and color pencil drawings with examples on the following pages.
