About the Artist - Peter Finger
Peter grew up in the shadows of the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. He started painting in his teens and was influenced by the artists of the Hudson River School who painted the wild landscapes of New England in the early 19th Century. Finger would trace the steps of these romantic painters and create his own interpretation of the scenes.
While studying fine art and art education in college, Finger would continue his Catskill Mountain journeys , now armed with a camera. Photography soon played a critical role in his development as an artist. His Super-realistic paintings were based on his photographs and were quickly sought after by collectors, corporations and galleries. Upon graduation he quickly landed an art teaching job.
While still teaching he worked as a photojournalist, workshop leader and artist. Fast forward after years of teaching and several years at Apple Computer, he opened his own fine art photography business. Along with his corporate photography, he still makes time to create digital fine art prints and one of a kind embellished giclee prints.
