Kristae Peterson is originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota living all of her life in the Midwest, the last 15 years in Omaha, Nebraska. A desire to become an artist started early on while painting at the kitchen table with her grandmother. Kristae received her BFA at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and has continued her education at the Women's Art Institute in Minneapolis. She has owned and operated Avenue Gallery that supports local and regional artists in Omaha for several years. Having shown extensively in the Midwest with her work in many corporate collections, she believes that art evokes emotion through color using the rich colors of oil paint, oil sticks, livestock markers, and fabric dye on canvas, linen or wood. Kristae believes that in her work it's the "art" that makes her create, not she that creates the "art".
