A Feast for Your Eyes

Welcome to the digital gallery of the creative works of Pete Lyon, we've been expecting you.

Piping hot and fresh from the mental oven, the creations contained within this site were cooked up between 2011 - present. The "chef", or in this case "artist/designer", has curated some of the greatest visual flavors for you to enjoy! Feel free to pair with a fine bold Italian red or a dry white from the Alsatian region.

A little background on myself: I was born and raised in New Jersey but have made a home all throughout the mid-Atlantic. I am a huge music snob, lover of the sportsball, IPA enthusiast and all-around nice guy. After a decade or so in the hospitality industry, I decided to couple my business acumen with my love of the visual arts. After receiving my BFA from Shepherd University, I have worked professionally in the field of graphic design, specifically the print sector.

In addition to being a designer, I fill what little down time I have painting. I have been exhibited in several galleries and have received many awards and accolades. I enjoy the freedom of expression and tactile workmanship of painting as a contrast to the formulaic and digital modes of design.

So grab a table or a seat at the bar, and prepare for a visual delight. Bon Apetit!

Self Portrait

"I see design as a solution to a problem. You must be solution oriented to be a designer.
I see art as a problem. You have to be problematic to be an artist."

My Sites

These are the sites that I have built over the last few years. I am largely self taught and have spent countless hours watching tutorials on Lynda.com and YouTube. I am pretty confident in my html and css knowledge and have a pretty good footing in php. I can fiddle with javascript just well enough to get it to behave like I would like.
