Using a ballpoint pen and photography suits my purpose.  My drawings are narrative, not so much about my past per se but about stress resulting from it.  Although lopsided and crumbled structures dominate my images, I am not necessarily portraying particular environs, but keenly, African-American resilience and culture.  

Prior to starting his own firm, Carlos F. Peterson Technical Art, Mr. Peterson was an architectural draftsman and award-winning illustrator in the steel engineering industry. Now retired, Mr. Peterson is currently writing a memoir addressing his family's experience with urban redevelopment on Pittsburgh's Lower Hill District. Mr. Peterson’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the Pittsburgh area. He has received juror’s awards for his work in numerous local exhibitions and purchase awards for drawing and painting at the Atlanta Life Insurance African American National Art Exhibition in Atlanta Georgia.
