Vanderheiden, who creates two-dimensional paintings, sculptures, photography, fiber, etc. through the mediums of acrylic, watercolor and oil, draws her inspiration from the beauty she sees in nature. She has been painting since high school. Currently, she is studying graphic design at Concordia College in Moorhead.

Peters' education began at Nicolet High School in Glendale, Wisconsin, and continued at Cardinal Stritch College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin while she was raising three children.

Now of Alexandria, she works with acrylics, oil paints, mixed media, watercolor and, most recently, collage and abstraction. As a master gardener, Peters creates inspiration for her paintings by using her gardens as a canvas.
