ABOUT SHELI PETERSEN

  • I love telling a story in pictures.

    When I’m not drawing, teaching students about design and illustration, or attending art openings, I’m out riding my bike. The critters, wild flowers, light, and landscape I see along my route inspire my art for timeless, historical, and contemporary tales. 

     My clients include: 
    Cricket Media, 
    National Heritage Museum,                      
    Highlights for Children,                         
    Renaissance House,                         
    Rigby, 
    McGraw-Hill
