Biography

**SCROLL DOWN FOR CURRENT ART FAIR SCHEDULE**

Peggy is a native of Lake Mills...and a lifelong Wisconsin resident. LM is located just off of I-94 between Madison and Milwaukee and situated on beautiful Rock Lake. Peggy currently has a studio located on Campus street in the heart of downtown LM.

During a twenty year career as an Art Director in Milwaukee, Peggy painted and exhibited her watercolors at various art fairs as time would allow. As her artwork grew in popularity Peggy and husband Bruce opened a small studio/gallery in Oak Creek, Wi in 1995. Soon after that she left her job to chase her dream of painting as a full time profession.

Primarily a self taught watercolorist she likes to attend at least one workshop a year to help with inspiration and motivation and in the past has studied with Zoltan Szabo, Tom Francesconi, Barbara Nechis, and Ratindra Das among others.

All of Peggy's work is now done on watercolor canvas. As multiple layers of watercolor are applied...they are worked and reworked...manipulated, both wet and dry...they are scraped, scratched and splattered. The canvas allows the freedom to take chances while still providing the happy accidents that only watercolor can provide.

Finished work is sealed with an archival spray varnish which protects against fading, dirt, moisture and discoloration. It requires no glass or matting...even framing is optional.

Peggy is a member of the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspersons as well as the Lake Mills Art Alliance.

Peggy and Bruce exhibit at art fairs in the Midwest from May thru October and in Florida from November thru April.
