Born in Port Arthur, Texas, Jane Peterman attended local schools before moving to Dallas for graduate studies. While raising her young children Jane discovered the nurturing quality of art-making and began her daily practice. Eventually moving from her dining room to her own artist studio, her work has grown both in complexity and size. Jane has won many prizes during her art journey, but the most important thing to her is making the work.
This award-winning San Francisco Bay Area artist holds a master's degree in business administration and, after a successful career as a CPA and entrepreneur, she began making art, focusing all her energy on learning about and making art which has sustained her for over 20 years. Not considered either academic nor outsider, this self-teaching artist attempts to make her art entirely personal, thoughtful and professional.
Peterman has exhibited in California, Louisiana, New York, and Texas and has collectors in the United States and Europe.
