Hi. Dear reader I am Peter Hoogerwerf, and will first introduce myself.
Born in 1956 in the harbour town of Rotterdam, I spent my childhood in the industrious and lively west part of the Netherlands. In the vibrant and cosmopolitan Amsterdam I completed my Art studies at the internationally renowned Rijksacademy. For a long time I afterwards lived and worked in the same city, having my studio there in a former Heineken building close to the Rijksmuseum. In later years I moved back to my childhood surroundings.
I started as a drawer, later I specialized in realistic bronze sculptures of men and animals. During the last years I more and more love to make oil paintings. Life in all it's mysterious beauty is a constant source of inspiration to me. Over the years my work increasingly has found a place in international private collections.
Hope you will enjoy my work and thank you for taking interest. Let me know if you have special interest in commissioning work or specific assignments.
