Peter Cady grew up on the coast of New Hampshire. His study of painting began as a boy observing painters with their easels overlooking the ocean. He studied civil engineering but found he was drawn to things artistic and to working with his hands. After college he worked in construction and learned fine woodworking. He still lives in the timber framed house he built from his trees. His furniture making started to incorporate color and a variety of materials, evolving into sculpture. After a second career of teaching science to middle school students, he returned to the arts. He has gotten to know and learn from many fine artists including Gary Haven Smith, Gail Sauter, Nella Lush, Tom Glover, Dustan Knight, Brian Chu, and Bess Cutler.
