About the artist

Lesley Peterson, born on the island of St. Maarten in 1943, has been painting since his teenage years. Beginning with oils on canvas at the age of 15 and sold his first paintings while still a student at the age of 18. Despite his 42-year-long career in education, where he retired at the age of 62, Peterson never stopped cultivating his passion for art. As a self-taught artist, he continuously expanded his skills and knowledge by reading about painting techniques and art history, by participating in workshops, and by visiting numerous museums and galleries in Europe and the USA.

Peterson was a founding member of the art foundation ‘Libertas’ in the seventies. His artistic journey evolved from surrealism to what he calls ‘symbolic realism’. Post-retirement, he dedicates his time to both painting and teaching painting skills to adults and teenagers. With several successful exhibitions on the island, Peterson's artistic talent has been recognized and celebrated.
