“I would hope that my work is constantly evolving. When I’m working toward an upcoming show I try to relate each painting to the one before. If it’s a landscape show I will have a common thread such as barns close up, far away, falling down or under construction”.
Art is in in Peggy’s blood. Three generations of creativity have shaped Peggy’s path, and her belief that her work is always changing. "My "Dreamscapes" series reflects the most personal pieces of everything I do. It may be horses flying in the sky representing a child’s imagination or flowerpots and furniture being thrown out of a twisted house”.
In 1975 Peggy lost everything in a bitter divorce, so she packed up her Colorado home, along with her two children, and started an adventure of travel that lasted till the early nineties. One of the places that they settled was Manchester, England, where Peggy worked in a pub and sold her first painting from behind the bar.
Upon returning to Denver she accomplished her goal of opening her own gallery, and it ended up being voted “Best New Gallery” in 1992 by Westword Magazine. Nine years later she closed her doors to devote all her efforts to her own work. Recently she has earned commissions from The Denver Children’s Hospital, The Anschutz Diabetes Center, The Shadow Mountain Institute, and was chosen for the 2008 Denver International Airport exhibition. In the book “Finding Your Visual Voice” Peggy is a featured demonstration artist. Peggy currently exhibits and sells her paintings at galleries across the Southwest, and works and out of her studios in Denver and Taos, New Mexico.
