Born in Montreal, Peter Allan studied art history and studio at McGill University and at the University of Victoria.
Now living on Salt Spring, Peter has recently started to work with Brazilian soapstone, sculpting amazing figurative works. Peter has always been interested in sketching and drawing the human form, and his expertise is very apparent in his pieces. His subjects are often mythological or magical, such as minotaurs and angels, rendered in significant detail and telling their own story through expression and posture.
