Testimonials

Peter has done several small and large projects for my old Victorian home on Grove Street. He’s always incredibly professional and accommodating. I know I can trust him to work diligently even when I’m away on vacation.
— HELENA PYO
People have been complimenting my bathroom nonstop since Peter remodeled it three years ago. Everything’s still got that new sheen and the tilework is just awesome.
— OMAR NIEVES
I’ve been hiring the Sweeneys since I first moved into my house over 70 years ago. They did my kitchen cabinets, fixed my drains, and even rewired the lights in my bedroom into a single switch! There’s nothing the Sweeney’s can’t do.
— ARASH TOUSI
I had this toilet that always had a problem. Either it was a leak or a plug. It was always giving me a headache. I’d hired other plumbers in the neighborhood, but problems would always come back. Since Peter worked on it last year, it’s been working perfectly. I’m so grateful!
— MIA ROWLAND

About Me

MY NAME IS PETER

I started apprenticing for my dad, Peter Sweeney, Jr. when I was twelve, but even before that I was watching him work all the time. My grandpa established our company in 1918, back when we specialized in carpentry and woodwork. Dad picked up new trades and expanded our business. I’ve been servicing the greater Wichita area for over 15 years and am about to bring my oldest son in as an assistant.


A 3D Pancreas and it's composition

The client: Dr Fiona Docherty at the Barbara Davis Centre for Diabetes (BDC)

The brief: Produce two figures: a detailed diagram of an adult human pancreas, noting blood supply and innervation; plus an explanation of the different tissues (endocrine, exocrine and duct) and a close up on an Islet of Langerhans showing the composition of alpha, beta, delta and pp cells with significant blood supply.


The outcome: The client was keen for the figures to be rendered my signature traditional style, so I created the three illustrations with this in mind. We wanted the figures to have a 3D feel too, giving the viewer an idea of how the cells would look in the human body, as opposed to the traditional, flat view through a microscope.
