Dark Green Paper Structures

The Art of
Léa Peterson

Welcome to my website. My currently available paintings are all posted here. Enjoy your visit and feel free to send me your questions and feedback.


I am currently working on a diverse portfolio, with subject matter that includes coastal scenery, as well as marshes and mountains. I'm particularly interested in the behaviors of shore birds, herons, ducks, gulls, etc. and am including them in my paintings. My emphasis is on bold color and the play of light and dark.

You can currently see my work in three galleries: the Moss Gallery in Falmouth, ME; the Barrett Gallery in Portsmouth, NH; and the Centre St. Arts Gallery in Bath, ME.

My painting “Rollers” was recently selected by the U.S. State Department to travel across the world to its embassy in Brunei, where it will now be on display for the next three years. This exhibition in Southeast Asia is meant to show the quality and diversity of American art.
