Peggi specializes in utilizing bold brush strokes and colors, while capturing a scene’s essential values, qualities, light and colors, and the contrasts between them. Focusing on capturing images as the mind sees them rather than the eye, Peggi’s primary influences have been abstract impressionist painters such as David Park and Elmer Bischoff. She is noted for her beach scenes, which have in part been inspired by watching her children.
Prior to launching her fine art career along with her husband, Peggi worked as an illustrator in the fashion and advertising industries. Born and raised in Arizona, she attended Arizona State University before relocating to California and attending the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where she and Ray met.
Peggi has won many awards and has been featured in both museums and several publications like Southwest Art and the Western Art Collector. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the California Art Club and the American Impressionist Society.
Peggi and Ray share a studio in their ranch in Angel’s Camp, California, where they continue their painting careers. Both have a fierce love of teaching, conducting both online and live workshops, and enjoy the interaction between student and teacher.
