Peter Leckett has lived in and around the Ottawa Valley for most of his life. A scientist by training and a software engineer in practice, Peter has always considered himself a serious amateur. Over the years, he has consistently developed his painting and figurative skills. Part of this development was his election into both the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC) and the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA).
An outdoor enthusiast, landscape seemed a natural choice of subject matter and the step to plein air painter a logical progression. Recently, he has turned to painting full time.
