Trained at the Pratt Institute in New York City, Peterson became acquainted with Louis Comfort Tiffany through her mentor, the Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla, whom Tiffany had commissioned to paint his portrait in 1911. Peterson was invited to paint the lush gardens Tiffany's Long Island estate, Laurelton Hall, and later accompanied Tiffany on a transcontinental painting expedition aboard his private railway car in 1916.

Her work is represented in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the High Museum of Art, and many other important public and private collections.
