Portrait of Peter Koenig

Peter Koenig’s creative interest began at an early age. His parents encouraged and shared their artistic abilities with their three sons. His mother’s influence was most inspiring and long lasting.

Koenig’s artistic passion has taken many different forms of expression over the years. His career began with early department store display work in New York City. He was employed for many years as a graphic artist for a large pharmaceutical company, while working independently for private clients who commissioned Peter for paintings, murals, and historical finishes.

In 1998, he became a founding member of the ARTery Gallery in historic Milford, Pennsylvania. In this new venue, he exhibited his passion for painting various subjects from folk art to modern pieces. His love of history and interest in early American signs was discovered by local restaurateurs, Rachael and Steve Scro of Sparta, New Jersey, who commissioned Koenig’s work for their restaurant Mohawk House. An extensive collection of Koenig’s early signs are displayed at Mohawk House.

In November 2006, his work earned him a place in the Wilton Historical Society’s American Craftsmanship Show in Connecticut. Now in 2007, his creative talents and attention to historical accuracy have been recognized by Early American Life. This is most rewarding.

In addition to his wall art, Koenig creates period painted finishes on early American furniture in apple green, mustard, blue, and red for the Duckloe Furniture Company in Portland, Pennsylvania. By using his special aging technique and materials, he is able to achieve a real sense of antiquity.

The artist resides and works in Orange County, New York from his barn-like studio. Koenig credits his wife Nancy, family, friends, and loyal clientele for his longevity in the field.
