Art @ the Library is a small, nimble and flexible project that aims to provide exhibition space for artistic and innovative proposals.

Born in the Netherlands to a non-artist family, Peter trained as a pastry chef and travelled the world with his job. He has worked in at least twenty countries, including Australia, Canada, Guam and Bermuda, which he calls ‘The Best Place in the World’.
Peter became an New Zealand citizen in 1987, moved to Australia for work before returning to Hokitika 7 years ago, in 2016 for a quiet life and small town living.
Hokitika is where Peter’s art journey began. He started picking up rocks from the beach and painting animals on them. About 5 years ago he saw an ad for Art4Me at WestREAP and he decided to go along. This is where he developed his art. Pater sees art as a very good hobby and has learnt all sorts of painting at Art4Me. He’s looking forward to developing his art further.
