Biography of Peter Hayton

Peter Hayton has enjoyed drawing in pen and ink, and painting in watercolour since his childhood. Many of his pictures can be found in places as far away as Canada, Norway, Holland and Australia. The inspiration and encouragement for painting in miniature has come from his mother who paints for The Royal Society of Miniaturists, Hilliard Society and the Society of Miniaturists. 
Peter lives in the Dorset coastal town of Poole and his love of the sea, through diving, sailing and power boating, has inspired a lot of his paintings. The scenes he paints are mostly based around the Dorset Coast and the Solent. 
Sunsets are one of Peter's passions and he can often be found sat on his boat in Poole Harbour, or off the coast, waiting for the exact moment to snap them up in all their glory.
As well as his seascapes Peter is now being commissioned more and more to paint client’s boats in action. Working from his own photographs, often taken at 30 knots plus, he loves to capture the excitement of the moment when the boats are racing along at speed.
Such is the demand for Peter’s work that a growing number of his paintings have now been put into Limited Edition prints.
