This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Bob Peters is known for his panoramic western landscapes, usually with animals, diminished by the immensity of their surroundings. The defining moment in his art career happened when he was a child on a trip to the Phoenix Art Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. He was especially taken with the atmospheric effects of light he saw in paintings, particularly one of gladiators by Jean Leon Gerome.

Peters grew up in Phoenix, attended art school, and then worked for a decade as a professional illustrator, painting advertisements for corporations and covers for books and magazines.

He decided to work for himself and was especially interested in the subject matter of horses. He and his wife, then living in Durango, Colorado, were breeders of Arabian and paint show horses, and he began painting horse portraits and horses in landscapes. But gradually in his paintings, the animals became diminished, and the sense of panorama of the landscape took over, dwarfing the animal subjects with mountains, clouds, or the depiction of a river.

Before settling in Prescott, Arizona, Peters and his family lived on five acres of land on the Central coast of California where he had ready access to the desert, mountains, and the ocean. He also visits animals in their natural habitat including Yellowstone National Park. He paints from field sketches and notes and usually completes about forty paintings a year.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, V:
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. Robert’s paintings are widely collected and he has presented numerous solo shows at several notable galleries. As a former award winning freelance illustrator represented in New York City and a member of the Society of Illustrators, his paintings were on the covers of national publications such as US News and World Report. “

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, and their horses and dogs.

He exhibits annually at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, The Autry National Center in Los Angeles, California, the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, and the Phippen Museum in Prescott, Arizona.

Publications that have featured Robert’s landscape paintings are Southwest Art, Cowboys and Indians, Western Art Collector, Art of the West, Equine Image, Persimmon Hill, Western Horseman, and Wildlife Art. The US State Department selected several of his paintings for their ‘Art in the Embassies’ exhibitions.

Biography from The Legacy Gallery:
Painter Bob Peters was raised in Phoenix, Arizona and spent much of his youth exploring the mountains and deserts of the Southwest. He received his formal art education at Northern Arizona University and Arizona State

His client list includes corporate giants IBM and AT&T. Bob's work was regularly juried into the Society of Illustrators annual exhibition in New York City.

In the early 1990's, Peters began painting landscapes full time. After living in the Arizona desert and the mountains of southwestern Colorado, he and his family have settled on a small ranch in the central California coast.
