Art and Writing


About Us

We went to live in Greece as a young married couple in 1962.  Our aim was to see if we could paint (Peter) and write novels (Susan).  Since then we have been painting and writing in Greece and England, with trips to America, New Zealand, Africa, and France. 

This website gives an idea of the work we've produced over the years - Peter's paintings and Susan's books. 

NEWS: May Exhibition. 

Exhibition of Peter's wildlife paintings opens at The Garages, Hemyock, Devon EX15 3SH on May 27th at 4.30 pm to 8 pm and continues on 28th, 29th, 30th, 31st from 9.30 a.m to 6 pm each day.  Oils and watercolours of the Somerset Coast will be shown as well as paintings of a wide variety of wildlife subjects.
