Peter Francis Lawrence

Peter was born in Perth, Western Australia, and now resides in Sydney, New South Wales Australia.

Growing up around the coastal regions of Western Australia, I developed an early love of landscape that continues to express itself in simplistic spirituality.

I feel at union with nature, where the human form is an extension of the land, sea and sky – light being paramount. Nature and life reflect each other in so many forms; the patterns we see in nature and in our lives.

I am sometimes overwhelmed in my observation of the Australian landscape, a feeling of 'connection and sensuality' – not wanting to disturb it but draw attention to it.
