A passion for enduring
design and ART
With more than 27 years as creative design director of his own international award winning design agency, Watts Design, Peter Watts has been exposed to the arts for most of his life.
Peter’s design work has been exhibited in many locations including New York, National Gallery of Victoria and in the National Gallery, Canberra.
He has been a judge for numerous prestigious design competitions including Logo Lounge USA, PICA Victoria and Tasmania and the Australian Graphic Design Association.
Peter’s design work has been awarded and published in over 100 publications worldwide, including Graphis New York, CLIO awards New York, AGDA awards Australia, MADC awards Melbourne, CREATE awards and Catalogue Awards.
Whilst still running a very successful Design Agency in South Melbourne, Peter and his wife and business partner Helen, spend a lot of time at their country property in Bullarto, Daylesford. Peter's recent paintings are influenced by the dramatic impressive cloudscapes and landscapes around the Daylesford area, depicting the wild combinations of shades, movement and time shifts inherent in the high hills around Central Victoria. With a distinct perspective on natural cloudscapes and landscapes, Peter builds on his design skills to interpret and structure each painting’s composition, moving from reality to a subtle abstraction that brings his work to life.
