Studio Cruise: Peterson focuses on fabric art
Mary Therese Peterson has always been an artist. She had two sisters who were painters and she took lessons from them back home in Herman, Pa. Peterson is one of 11 children, and their mother was a seamstress who also built theater costumes.
"When I hit second grade, I was identified as the class artist," she said. "I did portraits of famous people for class projects. I started taking my first formal painting classes at a local college while I was in high school."
