"Peggy is warm, generous and funny. The stories she shared from her past as a commercial artist were fascinating (I used to love to study those drawings in the Banana Republic catalogue, so stylish and inviting! How fun to "meet" one of the artists who drew them!) Peggy takes a playful, experimental approach that encourages looseness and freedom -- sometimes hard for those of us working with colored pencil, which rewards painstaking detail."
"Peggy provides excellent instruction with patience an grace. She shares little stories of her own art journey and some surprises in her art work. Her process highlights the importance of values and the benefit of complementary colors to add vibrance and realistic skin tone. She demonstrates a care free approach which encourages fun and play. It was an amazing experience with an amazing instructor."
