The son of farmers, Peter Brook was brought up in West Yorkshire where he spent most of his life. While training as a teacher at Goldsmith's College, London, he visited galleries and attended life drawing evening classes and further developed his art alongside his teaching career back in Yorkshire. On trips in the countryside with his art students he would tell them to use the same approach he used in his own painting: 'if you want a subject, look around you'.Brook became a full-time artist in his 40s and in 1962 was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists. He took part in successful collective exhibitions and well-reviewed one-man shows, displaying work throughout the UK, in Australia and the United States.
