Peterson attended ballet school and worked as a professional dancer for three years. Throughout her ballet career, she always had an appreciation for art. She says she attended community college classes and workshops to work on her craft, and later was privileged enough to have attended workshops with sculptors such as Walter Matia, Stanley Bleifeld, Bruno Lucchesi, and Sandy Scott. Peterson currently resides in a very rural area near Guffey, CO and provides care for two Great Danes, three indoor cats, two barn cats, two horses, and seven goats. “I spoil all of them rotten. With my menagerie, I am never short of ideas,” she says.
