My name is Peter van Stigt, Dutch, 1964-vintage and nuts about aircraft. I've had my fair share of airtime in various exotic aircraft types. My background lies in advertising, I started out as an advertising artist/visualizer/graphic designer. At some point I decided to combine my two passions, drawing/painting and aviation, and specialized in (military) aviation art. This has been my living since 1986. In 2005, I discovered the digital world and added digiart to my portfolio. I use my own photos, my own analogue paintings that I scan in, TerraGen, Flightsimulator etc, all edited in Photoshop (what else...).

My mission is to capture the sheer dynamics of flight in a single still image. Get the audience strapped into the backseat of a plane and witness the ultimate rollercoaster firsthand. I approach my aviation art as adventures that I live myself as a wannabee pilot. The majority of my art depicts military aircraft. Not that my nature is a militaristic one, I'm just hooked on the aerodynamics, technology and flight performance of military planes. These days I produce my artwork solely from my own inspiration and whenever I like it. Therefore, I don't do commissions. Have done that for too long. I'm sorry...

Nuff said, come aboard and enjoy the ride...
