About the Artist

Pete Pefley

Pete was born in 1964 and has been a lifetime resident of Chambersburg, PA.  He is a graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School, class of 1982. 

Pete's talent is a gift bestowed by God as he has no formal training.  His interest in art began at the age of 5 when he accurately drew a disabled truck in front of his home, to the amazement of the truck driver, who accepted the picture as a gift.  In the late 80's, he began watching a show on PBS of the late Bob Ross which sparked his interest in painting.  Pete started out by painting wilderness scenes using the "wet-on-wet" oil technique.  His first advanced oil painting was a depiction of the historic Cumberland Valley railroad station located on North Third Street in the borough of Chambersburg, PA.  Later, discovering the advantages of acrylic paint, he began specializing in this medium.  Pete began combining his love of painting and his interest in photography and local history to create what he calls Historic Composite Retro-Dating.  He has created, and sold, many paintings of historic locations in Franklin and Cumberland Counties, and especially in the Newville area.  In addition to the historical paintings, Pete is also very talented in the "Thomas Kinkade" style. 

Pete has become a professional artist by combining realism, Bob Ross "wet-on-wet," and the "Thomas Kinkade" style to create uniquely beautiful works of art.

If you ever had the desire to learn how to paint, but thought it was way beyond your abilities, then put that thought aside! You can learn to paint just like the Pro's and at half the cost!  Most class's just teach you the basic's and most Artist's won't teach you their secret techniques that made them successful. Pete is a very patient and thorough instructor that will taylor your class to fit your needs and desires and is not afraid to reveal his secrets to success, this stems from his belief that God gave him his talents and that he should share all his knowledge to those who wish to learn this wonderful form of artistic expression!

Let Pete help open a whole new world of creativity for you!
