About 3butterfliesArt

Hi my name is Peter Shanahan and a little of my background. 

I studied architecture on leaving college and have been involved in art both painting and sculpture since the early 1960's.  I studied sculpture at the Launceston School of Art majoring in cast metals and have been a member of the Tasmanian Independent Artists group, exhibiting with them for a number of years.  I have had exhibitions both in Tasmania and overseas and am represented in private collections both in Australia and overseas. 


I am now devoting my time to my passion full time.  Please review and comment on my work (love it or hate it) - it's the feedback that's more important to me, although sales do help me to benefit others as well. 

If you like my work please feel free to share my website with others who may be interested and on Facebook.

There are 2 main aims in promoting sale of my work -

1.  Make available original work at very affordable prices to cover costs and to enable maybe newer art lovers to access work and start collections without investing large amounts of capital. 

2.  Allocate a percentage of the profit component to individuals or groups to help others in our communities that need financial assistance.  Refer to our Philanthropy page.
