Native San Diegan, Barbara Peterson's interest in art began as a child.  During her early years, Barbara’s primary focus was horses--both real and drawn.  She attended USD College for Women where she majored in English and minored in art.  After gaining her teaching credential, Ms. Peterson taught Junior High School English, Math and Art. Her serious interest in her art began in the late eighties when she discovered the great adult education art classes being offered locally.  Inspired by both the   talented teachers and artists she met, Barbara became committed to her painting.


Barbara enjoys painting wildlife, still life pieces, portraits and landscapes.  She does commissioned paintings as well as paintings for gallery shows.  She views her art as an integral part of who she is.
