 About our speaker:

 Dan Peterson was the Official War Artist for 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards during Operation HERRICK 15 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, 2011–12.

 He studied art at Cardiff School of Printing and Cardiff School of Art and Design and has been an illustrator and graphic designer for over twenty five years. He was also a member of the armed forces, serving with 266 Parachute Battery, the TA Battery of 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery, for nearly 14 years.Image

 During his time with the Welsh Cavalry he went on vehicle patrols, foot patrols and operations, witnessing all aspects of the work the Regiment undertakes during an operational tour. Armed only with pencils, pens, brushes, sketchbooks and camera he recorded these experiences – the drawings and paintings he has produced make up a visual diary of day to day life on the front line.
