Jefferis Kent Peterson

(Jefferis is an old English family name from the Yorkshire area)

I began drawing in pen and ink in my early teens. My mother is an artist ( In high school, I studied with Mr. Dan Mistrik in Chevy Chase, MD.  He taught the Old Master’s technique of blocking in with darks and building up lights.  I went to be an art major at Connecticut College, N. London Ct. and took art for 1 year, but it was the early 70’s and free expressionism was all the rage, so no actual teaching took place.  I dropped art and became a religion major.  After seminary and a few years in full time ministry, I pioneered online education courses in the early 1990’s and have been heavily involved in graphic arts with web design, photography, and Photoshop.

In 2006, I once again picked up the brush and have been painting ever since. Currently, I refine my techniques studying with Lilli Pell.
