If Peggy isn’t in a classroom, art studio or her garden, she might be found at a garage sale or wandering around a hardware store imagining artistic uses for the objects she sees. Lines, shapes, textures, and glorious color can be found everywhere. Peggy loves to translate the world around her into weaving and tapestry, a very satisfying way to make art.
