Peter Ursem

Peter Ursem 

As an artist Peter is known for his multi-coloured lino prints, but he also works in charcoal and oil paints. The landscape is a main theme, with a special interest in landscapes that radiate ‘Genius Loci’, a spirit of place hinting at invisible connections and stories that may have gone on before.

Peter writes as Petrus Ursem. He recently published ‘The Bigger Picture’, a heartwarming collection of forty friendly fables, full of wit, reflection and enchantment to tickle the imagination.

Peter grew up in the Netherlands where he graduated in Literature from the University in Utrecht and in drawing, painting and printmaking from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague. He moved to Dorset in 1998 and, next, to Cornwall in 2011, where he now has his studio in the Tamar Valley. In 1995 he was awarded a ‘Debut’ award from The Hague Arts Centre ‘Stroom’, and in the UK a series of Arts Council awards, including 'Reflections, Woodcuts of the River Stour (2001) and 'Intimate Space, Artist Face' (2006). In 2010 he had a major solo show in Dorset County Museum (‘Dorset Footprint’) and in 2017 at Plymouth College of Arts (‘As the River Flows’).
