Peter Ivens is an active outdoorsman and practicing professional artist for over twenty-five years. 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. His expressive abstract artwork is inspired by the Rocky Mountains where he spends a great deal of time hiking, skiing and sketching.
