Sheli Petersen Bio




I love learning, teaching, and story-telling. When I'm not creating or guiding students, I'm out hiking or riding my bike. The wildlife, light, and landscape I see along my routes inspire my design and art. I exhibit my work at international, national, and regional venues and have five published picture books.

In addition to my creative practice, I provide collaborative leadership for the graphic design program and teach at Texas Woman's University in the Dallas area.

Thanks for looking!
