Artist Bio
Prescott, AZ - Robert Peters’ career as a professional artist has spanned more than 25 years. He is presently a regular contributor to prestigious museum exhibitions such as the Prix de West, Masters of the American West and Quest for the West.

As a former award-winning freelance illustrator in New York City and a member of the Society of Illustrators, his paintings appeared on the covers of publications such as US News and World Report. Robert began painting seriously while studying art at Northern Arizona University. Growing up in Arizona, and his extensive travels throughout its dramatic geography, instilled in him a deep passion for nature and the outdoors.

“The Western landscape is an endless source of inspiration to me,” Robert says. “I draw strictly from my own observations. That imparts an authentic and natural quality to my paintings. If something is in one of my paintings, I’ve been there and I’ve experienced it”.
That experience has included living across the greater Southwest. In the early 1990s, the Peters family left Arizona for Durango, Colorado.

Peters continued his painting while he and his wife, Nanette, raised and competitively showed horses. Peters has now returned home to Arizona, to the high country outside of Prescott, with his wife and children, their horses and dogs. He also exhibits at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Wyoming, and the Phippen Museum in Prescott, Arizona.
