Mary Elizabeth “ME” (Marvin) Peterson is an abstract artist based in Connecticut. A classically trained painter, her practice focuses on creating “Slow Art” that deliberately draws viewers in to increase well-being or what she calls flourishing. Plant and marine life, water, and environmental circumstances inspire her creativity.
ME has been painting since age nine and 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 received a residency grant from The Vermont Studio Center. Her work is held in private and corporate art collections worldwide and has appeared in designer showhouses, books, movie and TV sets. ME has a strong exhibit record including prominent museums and galleries. Major US home and design retailers sell quality reproductions of her paintings.
In the late 1990s, ME underwent 11 hours of life-saving brain surgery which ultimately became the impetus for her pursuit of a career in fine art. She had additional brain surgery and suffered strokes as a complication in 2017. ME made a full recovery and continues to make art full time.
