In 1992, after 30 creative years in advertising, Peter and his wife Jenny (a gifted and enthusiastic quilter), bought an acre of ground, designed and built a thatched cottage in Greyton and retired to the Overberg to pursue fine art, craft and gardening.

"With my advertising background, making things look good is part of my DNA. If I paint your portrait it will be you, that is a given, but you on your best day ever!

The elements of colour; value, temperature, intensity and especially hue, with a delicate balance between realism and the excitement of arbitrary colour are vital in my painting process, whatever the subject matter.

People and animal studies are my passion where I always try to achieve a feeling of spontaneity, expressiveness and attitude. For me every stroke is an adventure, because there’s more to art than duplicating reality". - Peter Diggery

Peter has many happy buyers, not only from South Africa but also from the USA, UK, Europe and Australia.
