Xan Peters

Xan Peters grew up in Clearwater, FL in his mother’s art gallery and studio. Always drawing dinosaurs and other extinct animals as a child, he moved to Bozeman, MT to study fine art and museum studies at MSU. His knowledge of paleontology brought him to work as the resident artist for the Carter County Museum in Ekalaka, MT. He received his MFA from the SMFA at Tufts University where he has taught as a teaching fellow. Currently, he teaches at the University of Tampa.
