Lynn Marit Peterson – Watercolors on Display at Chocolate Walk

I realized early in my art career that female’s names may change, so I decided to always use my middle name Marit as my art signature.  Good thing!photo

After teaching mostly junior high school art and being a “jack-of- all- trades” for 26 years, I finally settled down a few years ago to explore watercolor. Now a devotee to the medium there is always a painting sitting before me. With an abundance of breathtaking landscapes constantly changing in a never ending parade of shapes, shades and shadows, I am on inspiration overload. As a member of the Eastern Sierra Plein Air Painters my senses have been introduced to the pleasures of painting on location. I also enjoy painting in my studio where light flooding in my window on some object will motivate me to take brush in hand. I am especially excited with the possibilities of carefully combining color and composition and strive to make each painting an expression of what I see.

I received a BS in Visual Design from Auburn University, a Masters in Art from University of South Carolina and have taken and taught many art classes over the years. My work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and shows. I currently have work at Inyo Council of the Arts, Bishop Art Supply Gallery, Radio Shack, and Mono Council of the Arts. I also enjoy showing in the Altrusa Show each year

After retiring from teaching in Germany with the Department of Defense Schools, I now reside with my husband Steve in Paradise in the eastern Sierra Nevada overlooking the lovely Owens Valley and the Eastern Sierra Nevadas. I can be reached at or Lynn Marit Peterson, 17 Sierra Vista Circle, Bishop, CA 93514 760-387-2646
