A TAL­ENTED artist has been com­mem­o­rated by his daugh­ters, who have set up a web­site ded­i­cated to his paint­ings.

Peter Tu­dor, of Great Chart, died peace­fully in May sur­rounded by his fam­ily af­ter suf­fer­ing a heart at­tack due to com­pli­ca­tions from be­ing treated for lym­phoma.

An­gela Faulkner and Bev­erly Ver­nau cre­ated the web­site at www.pe­ter­tu­dor.co.uk to both show­case his art and to raise £5,000 for Can­cer Re­search UK by ask­ing vis­i­tors to do­nate to the char­ity.

Mr Tu­dor held many ex­hi­bi­tions and sold his paint­ings across the world, from Amer­ica to Rus­sia.

A man of many tal­ents, Mr Tu­dor was also a metal de­tec­torist, a self-taught pi­anist, and held a black belt in karate.

His daugh­ter An­gela Faulkner said: “Life is not the same without him. He was a lovely, kind per­son and we all miss him ter­ri­bly.”

She is now writ­ing a book about her fa­ther to com­mem­o­rate his life, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to Can­cer Re­search.

Mr Tu­dor’s grandaugh­ter Ja­nine Faulkner will be do­ing a para­chute jump at Head­corn on Jan­uary 7 to raise money for Can­cer Re­search.

Any­one who wishes to spon­sor Ja­nine should con­tact An­gela Faulkner on 01233 639345.
