Unicorn is part of Peter Kornowski’s Headlight Series. This time with a familiar vehicle. What else would be shocking to roll up on, driving down a country road?


I remember always having a passion for creating … drawing, painting, design, carpentry, music;  they’re all outlets for my creativity. I love bringing the imagination to life and sharing with others. Making things, and knowing how things are made, has always felt good to me.

I did not go to an art school, but don’t like to describe myself as “self-taught.” I learn through my own practice of course, but also a great deal from watching and working with other artists. I will continue to learn and grow trying to absorb knowledge and techniques anywhere I can.

I have held several different non-art jobs throughout my life. It’s been within the last decade that I’ve intentionally pursued enough art opportunities to work comfortably as a full-time artist.

Where possible, I attempt to tell stories with my art, creating the sense something is about to happen, or just has. I like imagery that begs questions; Who is he? How did that get there? Why? I don’t often impart the answer, I think that’s for each viewer to dream for themselves. My general goal with each artwork is to make it believable, but also slightly unbelievable, like a dream when you’re not quite sure what’s real.
