From Oak Park, Illinois, and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, a love of horses and the west took Peet to Colorado as a child, and again in the early ‘60’s. For over twenty years Peet has called the Colorado Rockies and Tucson’s Sonora Desert home, different times of the year. 

Since early childhood, Peet has been drawing and painting as well as having a passion for the outdoors.  With a B.A. in Art and M.A. in Interior Design, Peet has taught art and pursued a multi-faceted career in graphic design, advertising, and commercial interior design.  So much of the exhilaration in landscape painting is in the journey to seek out those “Wild Places.”  Hiking, cycling, canoeing, riding and kayaking, Peet seeks a vital sense of place and a glimpse into the powerful personality of back country spaces. 

Peet’s work has been juried into the Oil Painters of America – National and Regional shows, Salon International, The Russell Museum Show, Cowgirl Up Show, Mountain Oyster Club Western Art Show, Arts for the Parks and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters’ National Exhibits.  A painting was acquired for the permanent collection of the Pearce Museum, Corsicana, TX, as well as other corporate collections.

A Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters, Peet has been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West magazines, and highlighted in Western Art Collector and American Art Collector.

The Big Horn Galleries is pleased to present the Landscapes and Architecture of the Southwest by Darcie Peet. Please take a few moments to enjoy her work.
