Brian Peter Cosby

by Dana Kester-McCabe

Pete Cosby is a country lawyer by day and oil painter by night. What began as a leisurely diversion has blossomed into a passion.Pete channels his love for the outdoors and for the history of Eastern Shore life on the water into his art.

Oils are hiss preferred medium. He is mostly self taught beginning with copies of Impressionist masters. He has also had the good fortune to be mentored by some of the area's most accomplished artists.

Pete's philosophy of art draws from the drive to be productive and to serve something greater than himself.

Pete's powerful seascapes and scenes of boats and waterman can be seen at the Water's Edge Gallery in Berlin, and Bishop's Stock in Snow Hill.
