He discovered his passion for drawing at an early age when his father, a history and language teacher, began incorporating his illustrations of ancient figures into classroom lesson.
After graduating from Providenciaal Technisch Instituut Kortrijk as a Textile Designer, Peter embarked on a journey of self discovery. He has travelled extensively for the past fourteen years, living and working in Ibiza, Austria, Venezuela, The Dominican Republic and Mexico. His most cherished possessions are the memories he collected along the way – a secluded cliff in Ibiza, his wooden hut on the beach in the Dominican Republic, fishing in the Orinoco River and speaking with children in Los Roques, Venezuela.
As Peter Terrin fondly says, “Travelling all these years has left me with very little possessions but with lots of rich stories. I have met amazing people and learned many languages. It has become the fabric of who I am”.
Peter Terrin lives in Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Mexico, where his studio and Gallery is open to the public. In this tranquil environment, over looking the dolphins, he is able to share his unique view of the world through paint, canvas and pallet knives.
