Lesley Peterson 

Lesley Peterson, born on the island of St. Maarten, has painted his whole life since he was in his teens. He sold his first paintings when he was nineteen and still in school. He is self-taught and developed and broadened his skills and knowledge of art through the literature on painting techniques and art history.  Also by visiting museums and art galleries all over, gaining an appreciation for the masters and contemporary painters. In the seventies, he was a member of an art foundation called Libertas. In the past, he has painted surrealism but now dedicates himself to realism or what he calls symbolic realism. He also teaches art classes to beginners and intermediate students and has had several exhibitions on our island. Although he formerly painted with oils his favorite medium now is acrylic.
