Peter curates gallery spaces and is self employed on a part time basis with "The Arts Project" but is open to other freelance artisic work.

The focus of the gallery spaces support health care environments by showcasing creative service users, health care staff and artists from the London Community. The main gallery space is located at St Pancras Hospital in The Gallery Space of The Conference Centre.

The exhibitions are marketed in a range of media, involve opening night events and offer sales opportunities. Events are often linked to exhibitions including talks, film screenings and Q and A sessions with directors including the cast and director of the C4 film FABULOUS FASHIONISTAS IN 2013.

Examples of exhibitions in these locations include:
between 2003 and 2008 mixed media events :

Two faces in the crowd / Persona / The Flowering Tree
Chrysalis / My Camden
