Peter Sheppard Skaerved is known to the general public as an outstanding
violinist and a prolific musician. His close circle, however, knows that
he is also a highly gifted visual artist. During the intervals he sits
backstage drawing, capturing the audience and the general feeling of the
performance. After the concerts, he always withdraws to elucidate his
post-performance feelings on paper, using various mediums – graphite,
ink, charcoal and paint. Peter Sheppard Skaerved the violinist has been
hosted by the Pharos Arts Foundation quite a few times and all of his
concerts have been marked by tremendous success.
