ABOUT

Peters is a visual artist based in New Orleans, USA and raised in the south of England. She graduated with a first class BSc with a major in biology in 2019 and has a deep intellectual interest in science and technology. She taught herself to paint from the age of 12 and currently lives as a full time artist, exploring gender, space and the zeitgeist through a variety of media. Their work stems from an empirical understanding of the world coupled with a highly emotional response to it. She is inspired by the continuing battle humans face as animals existing between logic and sensuality.

Peters 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). She has shown works internationally in Lisbon, New Orleans, Birmingham (UK) and Central London. Her latest work focuses on dysphoria and gender.
