Peggy Strickland


Peggy considers herself a COUNTRY GIRL raised in Mt Hermon.

She discovered her love of oil painting as a young woman. Simply painting what she saw, she was constantly told  her art was beautiful and she should continue with it. However, like happens sometimes, life got in the way and her brushes and paints were crammed into the back of  a drawer, her desire to paint simmering for decades.

It wasn't until  an ad in the Era Leader, about an art class  being given by Ann Warner caught her attention that Peggy's need to paint resurfaced.

After practically forcing herself to take Ann's class at first, she is grateful she did.  Painting is once again her joy and passion.

Peggy  gives credit to Ann for influencing her on color, style and technique. She also credits  Ray Mathews, whom she says helped her with being more detailed and bringing a painting to life.

Peggy  enjoys painting from everyday life. There is so much she wants to paint, she's afraid she won't get to paint it all.

While Peggy normally paints on canvas, she has been known to paint on less  traditional surfaces.

Peggy has won many ribbons on her artwork over the years.

 Peggy  has done many commissions and her paintings are located in  homes across the country.
