Lexie Peterson is a portrait photographer, with a background in fine art, currently based in Oklahoma City. She was raised in Milwaukee where her parents, also creatives, encouraged her interest in the visual and performing arts. Much of her work is theatrical - she treats her camera as a stage, storytelling though evocative narratives and thoughtfully composed scenes. Lexie is a SA survivor, living with PTSD. Her photography functions as a form of therapy, as much of her imagery confronts her trauma, diagnosis, and healing process. She works with a diverse range of photographic and artistic media, from DSLR and the Adobe Suite, to large format film and alternative darkroom processes, as well as printmaking and sculpture. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as the Kennedy Center, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the OKC Contemporary Art Gallery, Sulfur Studios in Savannah, Black Box Gallery in Portland, the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art, SCAD’s Alexander Hall Gallery, DNA Galleries, and others. She has received a variety of awards, including an Award of Excellence from the Kennedy Center. Lexie graduated from Savanah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Savannah, where she earned a BFA in Photography with a concentration in Fine Art Photography.
