Lyle Peters


A native of Michigan, I became a Racine resident and an art teacher for 39 years. My career began as a teacher and watercolorist in suburban Detroit and continued in Racine, beginning in 1962. At that time, I was producing very liquid, free watercolors with themes using forms of nature. While teaching and studying at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, I began to focus my attention on ceramics. After earning my Masters in Ceramics and Sculpture, I produced functional high-fire stoneware for 25 years. During this period of time, I continued to paint occasionally in watercolor. Since my retirement, I am, again, concentrating on painting. Lifelong interest in gardening and nature influence my work.
