Peggy’s primary focus when painting is the energy of the land, not the actual depiction of what she sees. She reflects the feelings for the landscape through the colors that she uses and through the brush stroke. She uses loose, strong brush strokes laying color over color to create depth and texture. She most often uses a spatula to apply the thick paint and primarily uses oils to work on both archival birch panels and canvas.
Peggy’s love for the land springs stems from the land springs from being raised in the country by Santa Fe, New Mexico and working on her family’s cattle ranch. As well as developing her personal art, Peggy also taught art at the adult and high school levels focusing on composition and exploration of art techniques.
Peggy is featured in publications including the Outdoor Painter and Southwest Art Magazine and is a featured in Southwest New Mexico as well as Sasebo, Japan.
