“I love to capture the drama of light on my canvases.”

Peter Jefferson, a colorist with an impressionistic style, began drawing as an Engineer in Boston. At Carnegie-Mellon University, he received a Masters of Architecture and began painting in watercolor and studying life drawing. Peter’s art studies flourished at the DeCordova Museum School. His studies continued with oil painter Ovanes Berberian.

Peter heads the Kohala Plein Air group and was an invited artist to the 13th Sedona Plein Air Festival. His hula paintings are feature on the HGTV program “Building Hawaii” (episode 7). One of Peter’s landscapes was on the cover of the January/February 2018 Keola Magazine. You can view his works at the Mauna Lani’s Third Dimension Gallery, the Gallery of All Great Things, the Issac’s Art Center in Waimea, and Plantation Interiors in Kailua-Kona.
