Peter  Ivens

Peter Ivens is an active outdoors man and practicing professional artist of over twenty- five years experience. He is a B.F.A. graduate from the University of Alberta and has worked as an illustrator, designer and art instructor. A session at the respected Emma Lake Artists Workshop in 1982 encouraged him to paint full time and since then his paintings have been exhibited throughout western Canada. The Alberta Foundation for the arts holds his artwork in their collection, as do numerous corporate and private patrons.

The personal, expressive landscape is his focus in recent work, gathering inspiration from the Rocky Mountains where he spends a great deal of time hiking, skiing and sketching.
