Peter James Manos was born in New York City in 1926. His parents were Greek immigrants. A veteran of World War 2, he served as a combat artist in the Philippines. Later, he studied at the Art Students League and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He ran his own advertising art business for a number of years. In his youth he spent summers on Monhegan Island, Maine. In 1963 he purchased an old house on a sparsely-inhabited island near the small fishing village of Friendship. In 1970 he settled his family in the village where he and his wife Lucy raised their family. For almost forty years the century-old house with its magnificent views of Muscongus Bay was a magnet for his three daughters, their husbands and grandchildren. His wife and he now live in a retirement home in Kennebunk, Maine.
