“I want my paintings to convey a rich, vibrantly colored, visual and tactile experience connected to feelings evoked by the mystery and beauty of life and the passage of time. I paint intuitively, starting with color and texture. Then memory, ideas and emotion emerge and become part of the process of building layers of color and texture into a harmonious whole. Sometimes my work is abstract and sometimes landscape based. I work in both, oil and cold wax medium, and encaustic, hot wax. Both involve building up many layers and subtracting from them until the painting feels complete. My process involves discovery: not knowing all that will emerge, I see painting as an act of faith.” -Peg


Peg grew up in Seattle and Cleveland, her father was a museum director and so her family was immersed in the art world. Peg graduated from Smith College with a degree in English and Bank Street College of Education with a Masters in Elementary Education. She taught young children in public schools for 38 years. Peg has been painting since 1998, when she began classes at the Arts Center in Carrboro and Penland School of Craft in the NC mountains. She now paints in her studio at her home in Carrboro, NC. She is inspired by her early years in the Pacific Northwest, the landscape of North Carolina, hiking, gardening, her yoga practice, reading, people and the work of other painters.



FRANK Gallery was founded in 2010 as the result of a partnership between the Town of Chapel Hill and a group of local artists who came together with a shared vision to create an arts organization in downtown Chapel Hill. FRANK is both a fine art gallery representing the best of the local artists, as well as a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community through the arts.
