Whitstable based artist Peter Stockton-Smith studied Art & Design at Newton Abbot College
of Art and West of England College of Art at Bristol. Born in Torquay, Devon he has worked as
an artist and designer in London and for the last thirty years in Kent.
The influences of his West Country origins are very much reflected in his artwork, “The beach
as subject matter has been an ongoing preoccupation. The paraphernalia of the West Country
seaside holiday creates interlocking shapes and patterns, which are generally based on open
stretches of shoreline that constantly vary in texture, pattern and colour. How the light affects
various surfaces below the horizon line is the starting point for much of my work.”
Peter has also generously included a signed, limited edition of his book “Travelling Sketchbook”
along with his artwork donation.
