Pete Beckett is a British artist based on the Cheshire/Shropshire border.
He predominantly specialises in painting landscapes with a variety of approaches, ranging from representative to abstract. Some past work has also included figurative, bird and animal life and still life subjects.

Having travelled extensively, his inspiration comes from many different first-hand sources, always aiming to catch the mood and colour of a place, ideally sparking something special in each of our own mind's eye.
Artist’s statement:
“Having drawn and painted since my Marlborough school days, I still find the process of continuing to learn and experiment with paint very exciting. Each new creation is a completely original experience of capturing an image which evolves and aims to strike a chord. Putting enough paint down to draw the observer into a picture needs to be weighed up with the intention of not over-finishing a piece. In this way, the observer can put their own interpretation on the image and unlock that recognition of a place or situation without nature being copied.”


His paintings are enjoyed by private and corporate collectors in England, Wales, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Cyprus, America, Australia and New Zealand.
He also has work held in corporate collections.
