My History

Peter Fowler

I started painting in 1995 to educate and pass on my Aboriginal heritage to my young son and newly-born twin daughters. My Aboriginal background has its roots with the desert people of the Charleville Cunnamulla district. I was born in Brisbane, separated from my natural family, then adopted and raised by a celtic-Anglo Saxon family. I have been aware of this adoption since early childhood, but was not aware of my Aboriginality until about 20 years ago. I paint in a unique contemporary Aboriginal style which has attracted wide community interest. I conduct workshops with school children and donate many art works to community organisations for fundraising. I have held successful solo exhibitions at the Boonah Regional Art Gallery, Art and Soul Art Gallery Boonah, The Newton Gallery, Ipswich and Noosaville . I have also exhibited in group exhibitions at Boonah, Redland Bay, Brisbane, Jimboomba and Gold  Coast.   

             In 2005, I received a Highly Commended Award in the Oils & Acrylics Section of the Scenic Rim Art Prize and one of my paintings was acquired by Boonah Shire Council. In 2006 I received second prize in the oils and Acrylics section Scenic Rim Art Awards. In 2007 I was included in the book "Who's Who of Queensland " a remarkable achievement , in 2009 I again took out first prize in acrylics at the Scenic Rim Spar Arts Festival.

My works are held in private collections both in Australia and overseas.
