Peter Smith

artist background cover

Pete Smith started his journey in art in the ’90s as a self-taught Comic Colorist, working in traditional acrylics, inks, and airbrushes. An increasing interest in Fine Art led to many years of study at Leith School of Art in Edinburgh where an interest in traditional materials, oil painting, and life drawing developed. For the last 10 years, Pete has been blending his interests in art and technology to combine traditional techniques with new digital technology on a quest to find the ultimate digital toolset to provide a traditional drawing and painting experience. He creates marks and textures traditionally and then scans them and incorporates them into digital workflows using both the iPad and PC. After too many years in IT, Pete is looking forward to transitioning into a full-time art career.
