Peter Jefferson is a colorist with an impressionistic style. “I use color and light to create drama in all my work”.
He began drawing as an engineer in Boston. He received a Masters of Architecture at Carnegie-Mellon University, where he first began painting in watercolor and studied life drawing. Peter's art studies flourished at the DeCordova Museum School. His Studies continue with Master Oil Painter Ovanes Berberian.
Peter has directed the Kohala PleinAir Painters since 2013. His artwork has won numerous awards including 1st Place at the 2022 Hawaii Plein Aire Perspective.

I love capturing the diverse beauty of our Islands (my art shows on Maui and Hawaii Island). When visiting the Mainland, I often paint the dramatic scenes in Yellowstone National Park, Sedona, SunValley and the Tetons!
