You are warmly welcome to meet Peter at the Exhibition on Saturday 25th June, from 12pm-4pm. Wine and refreshments will be served throughout the day.

Peter Wileman has worked in the field of art and design for over 40 years. Painting since childhood, after leaving school he worked for the top publishing company, Hallmark Cards studying lettering and design. He then became the art editor of a number of IPC magazines. With a natural talent for painting and considerable experience in art and design, he decided to work freelance to allow himself the freedom to develop his own work. His style is bold and vigorous, both in the use of colour and the handling of paint, as he explores the effects of light on his subject. Seeking atmosphere through light and colour, he works in varying degrees of abstraction. He has exhibited widely including mixed exhibitions at the Royal Society of Marine Artists, the New English Art Club and was elected to full membership of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 2001, of which he is now President.


Peter's work has been recognised with various awards:
The Frank Herring award in 2000
The Cornelissen & Son Award in 2003 for outstanding work.
The Clerc Fowle' gold medal in 2006 for the most outstanding group of paintings.
Awarded the DAS Prize at the Mall Galleries, London in 2007 for a work of distinction.
In 2008 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA)
In 2010 was elected an Associate of The Royal Society of Marine Artists

Painting Light in Oils
By Peter Wileman

Peter Wileman is one of the most dynamic oil painters in the UK today and is currently President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. In Painting Light in Oils he demonstrates how to create atmospheric landscapes in oils with stunning effects. Light is what motivates so many painters. It excites the eye and radiates an energy that transforms an otherwise ordinary scene into something rather special. In his first book, Peter Wileman shows how he gets inspiration for his exciting landscapes and seascapes, working both on location and in the studio.
