About the Artist:
Svetlana Wright Peters was born in Tblisi, Georgia, on September 27, 1917.  She came to America on October 21, 1924 with her mother, Olgivanna, who later married Frank Lloyd Wright.

Growing up at Taliesin, Svetlana had many opportunities to nurture her creative spirit.  She sang in, and later directed, the Taliesin chorus, studied and played the piano and the violin, and spent time drawing and painting with Gene Masselink, Mr. Wright’s artistic and talented secretary.

Svetlana married William Wesley Peters in 1935, and later had two sons, Brandoch & Daniel.  She was pregnant with their third child in the fall of 1946 when she, Daniel and the unborn baby were tragically killed in a car accident, on the highway between Taliesin & Spring Green.  Svetlana’s death was one of Taliesin’s greatest losses.

Many of Svetlana’s paintings & drawings have been recently discovered at Taliesin and will be shown publicly for the first time at the Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956).
