Born in 1969 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Pete López is an attorney at law with a self-taught talent for painting and good eye for color. He has been producing art work mostly for his self enjoyment and that of his friends and family. He works with a palette knife, a metallic tool with a wooden handle. He mixes straight from the tube to his palette, and then on to the canvas, wood panel or masonite. It takes a skilled artist to use a palette knife and Pete has mastered this technique.
