Peter Smith

Lives and works: Lincolnshire
“My aim has always been to make people happy. I simply take a gentle childhood and combine it with what makes me smile.”

Peter’s delectable artworks have whetted the appetites of collectors around the world. Alongside his wife Jayne, he has created the Lost Impossimals™, Lost Alice™ and Impossimals® series. 

Inspiration

The pair’s home is the perfect studio for their eccentric art, with quirks including a Victorian dining room and a two-foot teapot. Here at Impossimal HQ, they create the scenes for their oil-on-board paintings, which can involve anything from baking dozens of jam scones to installing a mini railway line.

After training as an architect, Peter worked in design with companies such as Disney, Fox, Pixar and Marvel. He’s inspired by artists like Salvador Dali and Will Bullas, whose surreal characters and sense of humour bring life to their creations.

Peter says: “My aim has always been to make people happy. I simply take a gentle childhood, combine it with what makes me smile, and paint it.”

Inside the Impossimal world of Peter Smith

From baking hundreds of jammy cakes and scones to guzzling wine and installing a miniature working railway station, life at Impossimal HQ is never dull! 

Peter and Jayne are fond of creating a set to bring their characters to life. Jayne uses clay to form the shapes, with metals and mixed media for the background. Peter in turn works mainly in oils on board for his paintings, and clay and cloth for the sculptures.
