This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Council Bluffs, Iowa, landscape painter Andrew Peters grew up exploring an outdoors of timber and woodland and wildlife.  And the fascination he developed from those days has carried over to his travels as a painter from his home in Carefree, Arizona.  He has depicted scenes from Europe, Asia, and Latin America, and throughout the Southwest where for over ten years, he worked in Taos and the Four Corners area.

Peters, who showed art talent from childhood, attended college during the 1970s and favoring a realistic style, had difficulty taking art classes because of the dominance of abstraction.  So he studied science at Iowa State University and drew and painted on his own at night.

At age 22, he was awarded the Iowa Duck Stamp award, and through his 20s and 30s painted wildlife and figures.  He did not marry until his late 40s because he was consumed by his work but has married Dawn, also an artist.

Biography from Claggett/Rey Gallery:
Andrew Peters’ paintings are the result of a life spent in nature.  Growing up in Council Bluffs, Iowa, he was usually hunting and fishing with his father in the Missouri River Valley.  At nearby Fontenelle Forest, he was mentored in ecology by naturalist James Malkowski.  He drew birds from life and Audubon prints, and studied academic painting in the studio of Fran Day.  He earned a Bachelor of Sciences degree from Iowa State University with a minor in art, and won the Iowa Duck Stamp competition at the age of 22, which launched his fine art career.

The Joslyn Art Museum with its complete collection of original watercolors by Karl Bodmer, provided Andrew with his earliest art lessons and kindled his passion for travel and painting onsite.  He roamed Africa for a year, painting game animals and indigenous peoples.  He has painted throughout North and South America and in Romania, Morocco, Spain, Italy, France, and Ireland.  His plein air paintings faithfully capture light and beauty from life and are a key strength of his richly imbued larger works.  “A painting should read like a window onto a place,” he says, “luminous and fresh."  He believes that light-not line- determines form.

During each summer Peters roams the intermountain west, painting in the "Nomad", his travel trailer modified into a studio.  It puts him near his subjects for as long as needed to create works both elaborate and true.  He builds crates, ships to galleries and museums and continues onward in search of new landscapes. “It is sustainable travel, mostly in wilderness and without constraints”.  He has traveled 16,000 miles in a few months in this way and believes it to be the best way to create the highest quality paintings of the American landscape.

Andrew Peters' paintings will hang in the 2007 "Prix de West Invitational Exhibition" at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.  His work is also included at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Los Angeles at the "Masters of the American West".  His keynote speech there, Karl Bodmer’s Voyage and Legacy, details his own artistic journey as well.  He has exhibited at the Joslyn Art Museum, National Museum of Wildlife Art, Cincinnati Museum Center, and the Colorado History Museum.  In 2006 he was Artist in Residence at the Great Plains Art Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska and completed A Good Solid Century Farm for their permanent collection.

Biography from McLarry Fine Art:
Plein-Air painter Andrew Peters is known for his painterly interpretations of the American landscape.  Peters was born in 1954 in Coucil Bluffs, Iowa, and showed a strong inclination towards art during his.  He attended college in the 1970’s and at 22 he was awarded the Iowa Duck Stamp Award.

“A painting should read like a window into a place: luminous and fresh,” he says. Peters' plein-air paintings are born of his love for the open road and his endless quest for new subject matter. 

For more than twenty years he has traveled the world seeking inspiration on a daily basis in places that appeal to him on an emotional as well as visual level.  Over the years he has painted in Africa, Central and South America, Ireland, Spain, Morocco, Romania and Italy.

He and wife frequently pack their horses into the western U.S. wilderness to paint alpine lakes and glaciers at timberline, and his most recent body of work reflects these travels in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana.

He is based out of studios in Arizona and Wyoming.

Andrew Peters’ works are in private, corporate and museum collections.  His pieces have hung in the Joslyn Art Museum, The National Museum of Wildlife Art, The Buffalo Bill Historic Center, The Colorado History Museum, The Cincinnati Museum Center, and the Great Plains Art Museum.  He has been invited to show his work in numerous prestigious art exhibitions, and his paintings have been featured in many art publications.
