Artist Bio
     
  John T. Peters started drawing at the age of five. He began painting while still in high school. Later, in university, he continued studying both art and business. There he started painting using different kinds of media beyond just oil and acrylic, picked up his first professional quality brushes, and began painting and drawing the first of his pieces he would sell.
John Peters
After college John spent each summer on the Greek island of Mykonos, painting watercolors of the white washed village, blue domed churches and tiny winding streets, not to mention the myriad of nude Scandinavian women. There he learned to differentiate between the whites of Mediterranean sunlight and the whites of reflective island moonlight and began developing more of his own style mixing pencil and ink. Many days were spent on Super Paradise beach with friends from around the world. Many evenings were spent at the famed Scandinavian Bar, a subject frequently painted by artists like Thomas McKnight and Peter Apostolos.

Sacred to John are his Faces-in-the-Crowd ™ drawings. Each are 3 feet by 2 feet and contain about 1,000 small faces, each one different from the next. This simple doodling technique has kept John busy for thousands of hours. Crowd themes include concerts, bullfights, Olympic venues, sporting events and car shows – anywhere where a crowd might gather.

For years John has painted each weekend in his studio in New Jersey. Personal interests include international travel, ethnic food, and trying to figure out what’s going on in the minds of his two dogs. John and his wife, Kristin, live in northern New Jersey.
