Stanley L. Peterson has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in art and design.

When asked of his professional drive as an artist and designer, Mr. Peterson sums it up simply: he has an impulse to express himself creatively. Noting that this need to create has always existed within him, he celebrates a career that dates back to 1971, where he first established himself as an artist and designer by exhibited works at the W.H. Over Museum in Vermillion, SD. In his career, Mr. Peterson has found success as a freelance artist throughout South Dakota, where he worked on Public TV projects, and throughout California as a consultant and expert. To this day, he continues to put out incredible pieces of artwork. In recognition of his creative excellence, Mr. Peterson has been honored with an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, a Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award, and two Awards of Excellence from the California State Fair for his pieces of work: “Streamlined,” and “Norman and Nema.”

In addition to his work as an artist, Mr. Peterson has been successful in his career through engineering work. “In essence, the heart of the work is the same as art,” he says, describing that engineering is all about figuring out how something works to bring life to it in a new way. His prominent work in the industry included roles as principal engineering technician for the county of Sacramento, as well as computer systems manager and contract civil engineering technician for the City of Tracy. Mr. Peterson’s success is supported by his education, which includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts, received cum laude from the University of South Dakota in 1971. As he looks to the future, he intends to continue creating art while indulging in his hobbies of bicycling, walking, photography, travel and painting.
