Peter Close has been working as a leading sculptor for more than twenty years. Initially working on animal pieces, his outstanding
works in this field rapidly brought his name to the fore, and commissions from Greenpeace and the internationally respected Whale
and Dolphin Conservation Society swiftly followed. Working from his studio in the west of England, in 1994 his life size steel
sculpture ‚Integral‚ was selected for the prestigious Royal West of England Academy Exhibition. In recent times his reputation as a
portrait sculptor has led, amongst others, to commissions from many in the world of international motor racing; and to his most
favourite subjects to date ‚ portraits of famous military personalities and leaders, created exclusively in his studio in
partnership with The Military Gallery.
