Peter Gower is a self taught artist. I started painting in the 2nd grade and knew I had found a way to express myself and images around me in a way that others could not. I just sort of understood composition, color theory and perspective. While I went to graduate school to get my MBA and MIM and worked all over the world for 30 years in global business development and sales, I continued to paint when I could and visit museums, art galleries, exhibitions and artist studios. I like to work in oils or pastels. I also like to work in between realism and impressionism.
