Stacey Peterson was born in 1978 and raised in Littleton, Colorado. Growing up at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Stacey developed a love for the outdoors that influences her artwork today.
While Peterson's professional background is in the field of environmental engineering, she has always been interested in drawing and painting. She took up oil painting after graduating from college, concentrating on portraiture at first and then turning her focus to the landscape. An avid backpacker, hiker, and runner, Peterson draws upon her time outdoors to provide the inspiration for her oil paintings. She often works on location, and uses her plein air studies as reference for studio works that typically depict locations in the wilderness areas of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West.
Stacey is an award-winning painter, most recently honored with awards at the 2012 Salon International and 2012 Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters national show. She was featured as one of Southwest Art Magazine's "21 Under 31" in 2006, and has also had her work published in American Artist Magazine.
Primarily a self-taught artist, Stacey's art education includes coursework at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, and workshops with nationally recognized painters Dan Young, Jay Moore, and John David Phillips. By way of formal education, Stacey holds a B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Science from the Colorado School of Mines.
Peterson is a member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA), and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters (RMPAP). Her work can be viewed at Elk Horn Fine Art in Winter Park, CO, Oh-Be-Joyful Gallery in Crested Butte, CO, Saks Galleries in Denver, CO and Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, CO. Stacey lives in the mountain town of Evergreen, Colorado with her husband Nathan, five year old daughter Aspen, and two year old son Owen.
