Peter Hudson

 

  The hills and valleys of the Blackall Range are worlds from Australia’s red heart, but in both places artist Peter Hudson finds inspiration from nature.  Peter Hudson, who is a popular Maleny resident, has been painting for 27 years and considers himself as essentially a landscape painter.  During the last nine years Peter has become well known for his contemporary paintings of Maleny and the Glasshouse Mountains which display his very own distinct style which captures the flawless design, perfect line, colour and tone that nature provides.
