ABOUT PETER LEWIS
Peter Lewis was born in Mungindi, Queensland in 1953 and has been a resident of Newcastle since 1956, so he almost qualifies as a local. After graduating with a Diploma in Fine Arts in 1976 Peter tried his hand at a variety of jobs including pizza cook, labourer, taxi driver, commercial artist, stage designer, artist model, illustrator, web designer, landscape artist and part-time ballet dancer.
In 1986 Peter became the Newcastle Herald’s editorial cartoonist and will equal Les Lumsden’s 30-year record on Valentine’s Day, 2016. Peter’s talent at tapping into the social fabric of the Hunter via cartoon illustration has been acknowledged through various awards including First Prize in the Australian Rotary Cartoon Awards in 1994 and 2002.
Married to Julie Lewis, Peter is a father/stepfather to 6 daughters. Future plans include live portrait/caricature work and building a large mechanical fish tank.

ABOUT CREATIVE TALKS
Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks
, a series of breakfast lectures by people who are making a living from their creativity. Taking place on a Friday morning each month a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 20 minutes about the lessons they have learned growing their creativity into a commercial success. This is followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds, over a stand-up breakfast.
Meet, greet and eat at Creative Talks.
