Peter Simmons - Tortoise Tree
Peter’s artistic career began at Newcastle College of Advanced Education, where he studied plant and wildlife illustration. He discovered a love of sculpture after picking up a discarded piece of wood. Having transferred the image from his head to the wood, he was captivated by the sculptural art form.
His work has been shown in galleries and exhibitions throughout New South Wales. He was selected to participate in the 2000 Thredbo Sculpture Symposium and his piece, ‘Snowgums’, is now part of the Thredbo Sculpture Walk. His sculptures and Illustrations have found homes within Australia and overseas.
