Peter Symonds is a leading landscape painter specialising in paintings of the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands. He is a versatile artist and is also known for his portrayals of the Devon and Cornish coast, as well as many other beautiful areas of Britain and abroad.

Working exclusively in oils on canvas, his paintings are inspired by his love for the great outdoors. With many highly successful shows, his paintings have become very collectable and feature in prestigious collections around the world. Peter has completed a wide variety of commissions, both privately and for companies.


To be amongst the visually stunning, high and wild places of the world, with all the drama that the elements can sometimes throw at you, is to feel truly alive, and that is why I paint them. It is almost a compulsion. I believe a landscape painter has to have a sense of wonder, awe and humility before nature, so every painting I create is born out of a strong desire to interpret and then share what I feel when I am in such places.
