Peter Worswick was born in Blackburn, Lancashire in 1960. He is now based in Cumbria.
Peter Worswick showed early artistic talent but upon leaving school he trained as an electrician only painting in his spare time. It was a further 5 years before he decided to commit himself to painting on a full time basis.
Mainly self taught, Peter describes his images as realist, sensual and modern. He creates images that combine both rich and delicate colours along with numerous textures. This attention to detail enables him to create beautiful and highly sought after figurative works.
Over the years Peter Worswick has developed his own distinctive style. His tremendous talent has been rewarded by invitations to exhibit at Kensington Palace, London, as well as many prestigious galleries throughout the UK. He was elected an honorary member of the International Guild of Artists and was successful in winning first prize in a number of the exhibitions.
Peter draws his inspiration from many sources, including wildlife and landscapes but it is figurative work in which he excels. “I find that the female form combined with various materials of silk, velvet, lace etc. provide me with all the inspiration I need. The possible combinations are endless.”
