Peter Butler

"We came from the water, we are watery ourselves. In the pool, we are somehow closer to our own nature." - Peter Butler 

A competing swimmer since the age of six, Peter's childhood revolved around the pool. He competed nationally, and swam for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNC in 1976, and has lived in North Carolina for the past 26 years.

Originally from Utah, Peter has identified as an artist since his teenage years in northern New Jersey. He often spent time in galleries and museums in New York, finding inspiration in master artists Rembrandt, Cézanne, and Van Gogh, and in contemporary artists like Alex Katz.

In addition to his collaboration with us and with Joe Rowand Fine Art, Peter is represented by The Mahler Fine Art Gallery in Raleigh, NC.
