About Peter Hite

The best art commissions tell a story.

I create engaging artwork employing the power of story, making meaningful and memorable experiences. Many artworks are inspired by community stories or the journey of a single person but the inspiration is often muffled or forgotten. I build both the artwork and the story to create a lasting potent experience.

In my process, the artwork is often born from the story. But sometimes, it’s the opposite. The artwork comes first then I craft the story. So, know that some of the stories associated with my artwork are of my own creation. They are often anchored in historical events but the people featured are fictitious. Any resemblance to living or deceased people is coincidental and is not intended.

The works presented on my site are in various states of completion. Some currently exist only as a concepts, some are being made now and some are completed.
