Skilled draughtsman Peter Beatty is an illustrator that makes work which is often dreamlike and reflective, natural and dramatic.

Colourful and detailed, Peter uses pencil sketches to form a folkloric narrative in his creations before enhancing them with ink, paint or collage and finishing them digitally.

He draws influence from the likes of illustrator Sean Tan, collage artist Sara Fanelli and the drawings of William Blake, Charles Keeping, Sydney Symes and Edward Gorey. He is also inspired by Japanese prints, and screen prints by US poster artist Jay Ryan.
