Peggy is inspired by the amazing world around us. She paints to express her enjoyment of nature. She doesn’t copy a scene, but rather paints her version or essence of it.
Peggy resides in Oscoda, MI.. She spent summers in the Tawas/Oscoda area with her grandparents while growing up. After college she moved to Rogers City where she raised her family and taught elementary school for 38 years. During this time she focused on Photography and worked with stained glass. Her photos serve as references for her paintings, hoping others will also enjoy the places that resonate with her.
Now that she is retired she has time to pursue her love of painting. She takes advantage of workshops, whenever she can to learn, explore and experience new techniques. She began with watercolor, then oils, and now paints mainly with acrylics. A few years ago she was introduced to batik, which brought her back to watercolor (on rice paper).
Peggy’s work has been accepted in several juried shows both in Tawas and at Besser. Her work has also been displayed at the Frankenmuth Art Gallery. It is currently on display at the Dragonfly Art Gallery in Harrisville, the Great Lakes North Gallery in Greenbush, Truly Yours in Oscoda and at the Spirit Line Gallery in AuSable.
Peggy enjoys kayaking, suduko, baking and playing with her granddaughters in her spare time.
