Peter Speed

Peter Speed was born at Dartford, Kent in 1948, son of Kenneth A Speed (born 1923) and his wife Elsie Florence née Greenslade (1921-1999), who married at Dartford in 1947. Educated at Braintree County High School in Essex and studied at North East Essex Technical College. In 2000 he retired as a Chartered Engineer and Project Manager with BAE Systems. An artist who now paint a variety of subjects for pleasure and for sale, being inspired by the landscapes and coastline of Suffolk he often produces a series of works with a common theme, sometimes in monochrome, which enables buyers to match paintings to their décor. All of his work is in acrylic colour, a versatile and vibrant medium that lends itself to conventional techniques but also facilitates experimentation. Landscapes and seascapes are his special interest and also works on commissions. A member of the Bury St Edmund's Art Society from Highbank Nursery, The Hill, Stanstead, Sudbury, Suffolk. www.peterspaintings.co.uk
