Mary Lou Peters lives and paints in beautiful northern Michigan. The location of her home near the tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula provides nearby access to her favorite place to paint—Mackinac Island. Right outside her windows she's surrounded by flower gardens that present an ever-changing gift of inspiration for many of her paintings. Mary Lou loves being an artist. Her favorite painting experiences are when she’s just free to have fun and play around with the paint. She hopes that her paintings leave viewers feeling happy and wishing they were in the places she has painted.
