Pete Hawkins was born in Panama in 1980. After a well-travelled upbringing in an artistic family, Pete “did the obvious thing” and studied business at university. Painting in his spare time as he pursued a career in advertising, Pete eventually decided to make the leap into a full-time artistic career and exiled himself near the Trafalgar lighthouse in Spain for inspiration.
