Peeters was born and died in Antwerp. He was taught to paint by his brothers Gillis Peeters (1612–1653) and Bonaventura Peeters (1614–1652). He became a master of Antwerp's guild of St. Luke in 1645, and like his brother Bonaventura, he specialized in dramatic shipwrecks with dark billowy clouds. In 1654 he married Catherine Buseliers. In 1659 he spent several months touring the Netherlands. He had two children, Jan Frans and Isabella.
He is also known for his travel drawings that were used by various engravers.
