Artist of the Month

Sheli Petersen - Illustrator

Kimmel Gallery

Morton-James Public Library

 

The public is invited to view the exhibit

during regular library hours

 

Sheli Petersen is a visual storyteller, inspired by the relationship between life cycles and landscapes, and enjoys the process of spontaneous mark-making that suggests a mythological dimension. In addition to her fine art, Petersen brings her interest in nature and mythology to illustrated children’s books. Included in the Kimmel Gallery exhibition are excerpts from How Two Mice Started a War and The Ravens of Greystone Farm, as well as Voladores, published by McGraw Hill.

 

Petersen’s clients include McGraw-Hill, Harcourt, Highlights for Children Magazine, and the National Heritage Museum. She exhibits her award-winning work at regional and national venues. Petersen also shares her accomplishments and experience in design, illustration, and art with students at Peru State College as an Assistant Professor of Art.
