Anker Eli Petersen (born 7 June 1959 in Tvøroyri) is a Faroese writer and artist.

He is most known for his many Faroe Islands postage stamp designs under the name Anker Eli. Many of his stamps depict scenes from Norse mythology, Christianity, or interpretations of other Faroese authors or poets. He is also designing the Postverk Føroya web site, that will become a portal about the Faroes, and has illustrated many books.

As a writer, he translates texts from Old Norse, and writes children's carols and lyrics for Faroese singers.
