  • About

    Peebles was born in Melbourne and studied printmaking at RMIT 1973-75, with further studies in Italy and England in 1976-77, specifically on the mezzotint. He has exhibited prints and has taught printmaking in Melbourne since 1977. He is Australia's foremost practitioner of mezzotint, the first of which he made in 1973. His early works are principally still life, the object drawn directly on to the plate; often there are metaphorical links; for example he often uses fruit whose shapes lend themselves to innuendo.
