Recently, she has enjoyed taking classes at the Ventura College with Bill Hendrix.
Her work has been published in “Color Confidence” by Tim Grey, as well as, in wild life photography books, “The Lens and the Land” and “Spirit of the Chaparral”. Peterson has received several recognitions such as, top honors in the “Best Photography Journal” in 2002 and 2003 and was chosen as Feature Artist for the City of Ventura 2005 Summer ArtWalk.
