Peter Hearsey studied painting, illustration and etching at Art School in the 60's before working in advertising in London as a visualiser/ Illustrator. For over 30 years he has lived in the Isle of Man and although brought up in and around boats and sailing( mainly at a "messing about" level) in the 80's he got diverted into historic automotive art. For over 20 years he produced the official poster image for the Goodwood Festival of Speed and has been exhibiting in the USA since 1989. In 1992 he was elected to the Automotive Fine Arts Society in the US and has exhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours most years since then, and was commissioned to produce the poster painting for the Concours last year.
His automotive work is collected worldwide and has had work commissioned by Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, McLaren and Ford etc. He is now looking forward very much to creating marine art, especially through the medium of etching.
