    About the artist

    Mary Elizabeth (Marvin) Peterson is an American abstract artist based in North Carolina and Connecticut. A classically trained painter, Peterson’s practice focuses on creating “Slow Art” – paintings that deliberately draw viewers in to increase well-being or what she calls flourishing. She speaks often about the transformative nature of art. Her work is inspired largely by plant and marine life, water and ecological circumstances. Peterson is a graduate of The University of Connecticut and The Corcoran College of Art + Design. She is a juried member of the elite Silvermine Art Guild and has received an artist residency grant from The Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been written about widely in print and digital publications and is held in private and corporate collections worldwide.
