ABOUT

I am interested in queer, female, gender-based and outsider narratives as well as intimate and societal trauma. My recent work has focused particularly on sexual violence in Louisiana USA and the UK. I work with paint but also spend much of my time interviewing people about their experiences, creating film, audio, images and texts with the findings.

Peters graduated with a first-class BSc in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Biological Science in 2019 from the University of Birmingham, UK and is working towards a masters of Fine Art at the University of the Arts London (online). Peters moved to Louisiana in 2017 and quickly made it her home, though she often visits her family back in the UK and Europe.

She was the winner of The Ashurst Emerging Artist prize (2019) and the CHBH (Centre for Human Brain Health) artwork competition (2019) and was also highly commended by the Visual Art Open award (2020), the RAD prize (2022) and the Parse Student Juried Competition (2018). She is a dual US/UK citizen, and recently completed a residency at GlogauAIR in Berlin (DE).
