ABOUT THE ARTIST…..
Stephanie Peters was born near Baltimore, Maryland. She spent her early childhood living on an Arabian horse farm in Harford County, Maryland. She grew up running around open fields and raising animals. Later, during her adolescent years she lived in the Washington D.C. area and was inspired by the works found in the galleries and museums including Robert Rauschenberg and Alexander Calder.
She went on to complete a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art at the University of Arizona, in Tucson, in May 2009. In 2011, she relocated to Camp Verde to help open a contemporary art gallery featuring local art.
Peters has found inspiration in the natural world since childhood. She has traveled to interesting places in order to have firsthand encounters like hiking with a herd of Desert Big Horn sheep or snorkeling with tropical fish. These events regularly inspire new work she creates in her studio, located in Sedona, Arizona.
