This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography, submitted October 2008, is from Shelly Kolean, niece of the artist:

Peter Kolean was born on April 17, 1907 in Holland, Michigan, oldest son of John Kolean and Johanna Arensman Kolean.  He died April (I believe 26th), 1988 in Delray Beach, Florida, leaving behind a widow Mellie Jo (Galloway) Kolean.  He was previously married to Alice Plasman.  He had no children. (Note: He had a cousin, also Peter Kolean, born in 1911 in Holland, Michigan, and this cousin's birth & death info has been seen on some of Artist Peter Kolean's biographical information).
Peter had 6 younger siblings, Theresa Lena Kolean (Bert) Wierenga, Janet Ida Kolean Barton, Harry John (Margie Knoll) Kolean and John Harry (LaMae) Kolean - twins - twins born 10-8-1913, Joseph (Corinne Baker) Kolean born Sept. 1914, and Adrian George (Mary Jo) Kolean born November 1915. Non of his siblings are still alive.  He had 16 nieces and nephews, 13 of whom are still living.
In the 1950's/1960's, his work was shown a lot in the New York/Massachusetts/Connecticut area, including shows at Lord & Taylor in New York.  He moved permanently to Florida in the 1950's, showing work in the Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, and Miami areas.  Most of his later work was done with a pallette knife.
