“The reason that I paint landscape is because I really love being outdoors. It’s just the thing that makes me feel whole. My goal as a landscape painter is to bring a little bit of that feeling of being outdoors into a painting.”

Biography

Stacey Peterson

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 mountain biker, 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 the Lucile Van Slyck Best of Show award at the 2017 A Timeless Legacy Show, held at the Hockaday Museum of Art. She has been featured in Southwest Art and Plein Air Magazine, and had her artwork published in American Artist and Western Art Collector 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 signature member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA), and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters (RMPAP). Her work can be viewed at Oh-Be-Joyful Gallery in Crested Butte and Telluride, CO, Saks Galleries in Denver, CO, Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, CO, Terakedis Fine Art in Billings, MT, and Frame of Reference Fine Art in Whitefish, MT. Stacey lives in the mountain town of Evergreen, Colorado with her husband Nathan, eleven-year-old daughter Aspen, and eight-year-old son Owen.
