Peter Standen was born in Carshalton, Surrey in 1936. He served a bookbinding apprenticeship before studying at Nottingham College of Art and Craft between 1954 and 1956 and was subsequently awarded an Andrew Grant Open Bequest. He completed both his undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Edinburgh College of Art before undertaking two years of national service with the British Army of the Rhine. Afterwards he travelled extensively in Spain, North Africa and the Middle East.

He has taught in various schools, and in 1987 served as the Scottish Arts Council Artist-in-Industry with Ferranti Professional Components plc in Dundee. He has been a member of The Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop since 1972, and of the Society of Scottish Artists since 1965. His work has been included in collections,such as Sautter-Fischbaker, Zurich; Hamilton Art Gallery, Ontario; Instituto Perla Cultura & L'Arte Catania; Scottish Arts Council; City Art Centre, Edinburgh; Leeds Education Department; International Club, London; Ferranti, Dalkeith and Dundee; the Royal Bank of Scotland; and Durham University.
