Peter Devine divides his time between his studio in Nova Scotia and home in New York City. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut, concentrating his study with Anthony Terenzio. From Terenzio he was introduced to the intoxicating color of Bonnard and the limitless possibilities offered by the abstract expressionists.
After graduating, he taught studio art and art history at Mitchell College in Connecticut. Returning to study, he was awarded a graduate fellowship at Arizona State University where he received a Master of Fine Arts in painting. Resuming his teaching career, he was appointed head of the art department at The Woodstock Country School in Vermont and later taught design and figure drawing at the University of Connecticut.
Devine now dedicates himself entirely to painting. In addition to winning a number of artist grants, he has exhibited from New York to California, most recently at Noel Fine Art in Bronxville, New York. His work is in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
Though his style has grown from pure abstraction to representational landscapes, it is the underlying power of abstraction and the expressive power of content that guide his work.
