Craig Peterson was born and raised in western Pennsylvania. He currently resides in Blairsville, PA where he works out of his home studio. Art is his passion, but trail running is his inspiration. Most of his work is related to the outdoors. Traveling has opened up his world and has helped his artwork grow. He has always been interested in art, but never planned on being a full-time artist. In 2012 he made his mom a gift that was paper stained with coffee and the words Live Laugh Love written in calligraphy. This was the first piece of coffee art he created, but certainly not his last. In 2013 he started selling his work to friends and then at local craft shows. Every year since he has created new work and has been selling all over the US. He now sells at about 30 art events throughout the year and has driven as far as Colorado to sell his work. The name Artworkontherun combines his passion for artwork and his love for running. If you'd like to meet him in person check his event schedule and find him at his booth. He will be happy to chat with you (especially about the outdoors).
