Peter Artist and analyst
After his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the National University of Ireland, Peter went on to do his doctorate in Cognitive Psychology at Oxford University. Among the important things he learned was that he needed to paint with his left hand, rather than his right. He combined early work at the Max Planck Institute in Munich with the development of a successful career as an artist. He ultimately left psychology to work in the visual arts full-time, including thirteen years as the editor-in-chief of Ireland’s leading art magazine, Circa.
