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.

Born and raised in the Seattle area, where the rainy months give ample time to get creative and explore new techniques waiting for the precious months that the sun actually makes an appearance! When not loosing track of time in the studio while working, you can find him out scavenging at local salvage yards and antique stores or busy concentrating on a new Lego project.

Current working industry relationships include:

•Educator for Prima Marketing

•Creative Team Member for Finnabair

•Design Team Member for Authentique Paper

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