Paige Peterson (artist)

Paige Matthews Peterson (born March 19, 1955 in Marin County, California) is an American painter and illustrator specializing in acrylic landscapes, portraits, and figural images. She now lives and works in New York City and East Hampton, Long Island. Peterson's work has been characterized as "lyrical" by the Philadelphia Inquirer and "spare but evocative" by the San Francisco Chronicle. Peterson has been exhibited regularly in galleries from California to Maine (where, in 2004, her paintings appeared in a group show that also featured works by Christo, Chuck Close, and Alex Katz).

In 2002, Paige Peterson was featured in Studios by the Sea, a photographic account, by Bob Colacello and Jonathan Becker, of artists working and living on Long Island's East End, and, a year later, she was selected for lifetime membership in the Guild Hall Academy of the Arts. In 2006, she co-authored and illustrated the children's book Blackie, The Horse Who Stood Still, which is in its fifth printing from Welcome Books in New York City. Her most recent exhibition was in July 2008, when her work was featured in a one-woman show at the Spanierman Gallery in East Hampton, New York.

Paige is currently the Vice President of Special Projects for Welcome Books, where she also has an imprint, Cerf & Peterson. She is the illustrator and co-author (with Christopher Cerf) of the children's book Skidboot the Dog which is scheduled for publication in the fall of 2009.
