Mike Peterson is an artist living in Austin, Texas. He attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois, concentrating his studies primarily on watercolor painting.  He is a signature member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and a previous best-of-show winner in the Texas Watercolor Society.
After many years as a watercolor painter, the attraction of oil painting became too much to resist. Inspired by the masterful paintings of John Singer Sargent, Nicolai Fechin and Richard Schmid, he turned his focus to oil painting. Now a dedicated oil painter for over 20 years, he continues to explore the unique qualities and challenges of this versatile medium.
His work can be found in the collections of Amoco and the McNay Art Museum (San Antonio, Texas), as well as many private collections.
