John Creighton Petersen is a lifelong resident of Seattle. Although John has a degree in photography, his vast knowledge of a wide variety of art mediums includes painting, calligraphy, journal and book making, collage to beading, resin jewelry, soldering and metal work which has lead him to be dubbed a “Mixed Media Fusion” artist by combining all of these mediums into works of art. An in-demand working artist in the truest sense with a passion for teaching, he’s on the road several months every year sharing his knowledge and techniques with others.

He has served as an educator and designer for many high profile companies in the craft industry including Prima Marketing, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko, “The ICE Prince” with ICE Resin, Authentique Paper and an Ambassador for RELICS & ARTIFACTS.
