About the Artist:
Pete Mair was born in Neptune, New Jersey, which is very close to the ocean. Living close to the water is something Pete missed very much, while living in Atlanta, Georgia. It was in Atlanta where Pete began his professional career as an Artist. He joined an artist group in Atlanta and was accepted into a few local galleries, where he began selling both his original paintings as well as his reproductions. Pete is born to an artistic family. His brother is also a painter. Pete came to art late in life. He felt that art belonged to his bother. So Pete pursued music. These days you’ll catch Pete playing his music as well as creating beautiful art.
Pete considers his art to be somewhere between realism and impressionism. Pete works with watercolors, gouache, and acrylics. Pete enjoys painting a wide range of subject matter.
Artist’s Personal Statement:
“Being an artist wasn't a conscious decision, it was inevitable.
It became important to me to share my passion with others.
The arts feed my soul and my family supports me. “
