In 2014 Peter was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and the Royal Cambrian Academy (RCA). He was identified as 'One to Watch' by Moneyweek Magazine in the same year and in The Guardian in 2017. Peter Kettle is certainly an exciting young talent on the rise in contemporary landscape painting. He has focused his career on the untarnished natural beauty of Britain and the story of Wales. Previously, he has made series of works on the Port Talbot Steelworks, The Taff Railway Trial to the Brecon Beacons (marking the coal transport route and source of the River Taff) and North Wales Slate Industry.
In 2018, Peter turned his attention to Patagonia, and spent 4 weeks retracing the steps of the Welsh Settlers Voyage. He also payed homage to Kyffin Williams trip to Trevelin in Patagonia 50 years ago to 2018; trekking the Andes with a canvas roll on his back. Peter is growing into an international artist, and in 2019 - in association with Frank Water charity - spent 3 weeks in Nepal trekking to Everest Basecamp, collecting litter and plastic along the route. He will be reusing the materials into upcoming artwork and a major touring exhibition in 2020. His ambitious projects overseas always bring him back to revisit his loved spaces in Wales and England
