Amy R. Peterson
Amy R Peterson is a native of Birmingham. She studied art at the University of Notre Dame. She worked for Portrait Brokers of America (now Portraits, Inc.), facilitating workshops as she grew as an artist and pursued her painting career. Her passion for plein air painting led her to NM where she lived and gained gallery representation in 2012-13. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America; American Impressionist Society; Mountain Brook Art Association; and Show Coordinator for the Alabama Plein Air Painters. She leads art sessions at First Light Women's Shelter; serves on the Sculpture and Arts Committee of Aldridge Gardens; and is a docent-in-training at the Birmingham Museum of Art. She was featured in StyleBlueprint FACES of Birmingham in August 2016, highlighting her current focus of painting local city scenes. "I am enchanted with the beauty of Birmingham, its blend of old and new, its icons, architecture, history and revitalization. I rely greatly on my plein air studies and experience to infuse my studio paintings with life and light. Plein air painting is at the foundation of my impressionistic approach to painting. As an outdoor enthusiast and conservationist, I value plein air painting as an opportunity to document a place in time, on canvas, immersed in the weather, the season, and the uniqueness of each location."
