Peggy has a passion for art and her paintings are inspired by natures treasures, intuition, light and imagination. She has been painting since early childhood. Her mother was an amazing artist and she had a profound effect on her life as a painter. She was born and raised in the south and lived in Hawaii for 25 years before moving to Idaho in 2008. The dramatic changes and having the opportunity to experience the four seasons has helped her to evolve as an artist. She is self taught and inspired by impressionist masters Monet, Van Gogh and Degas. Peggy has studied their compositions, light and emotion. She paints in oils using a plaette knife ... layering to build interest, depth and magnetism. It is a unique impasto process using a large amount of paint.
