Artist Profiles » Peggy Lee

Peggy LeePeggy is inspired by nature, especially the sea, mountains and native bush in New Zealand.
Peggy is very passionate about the coastline around Raglan harbour and the rugged West Coast beaches, where she now lives.
Peggy says of where she lives:-
There are days of still serenity when the harbour is glasslike and nothing moves apart from a lazy fish on the surface of the water.
Then there are other days when raging storms whip the sea and surf into a frenzy against the beaches and cliffs with an intense raw energy.
I enjoy finding driftwood and human discarded objects, which become skeletal over time from the washing of the waves.
I try to paint the true mood, light and colours of Aotearoa as sometimes there is nothing that can surpass the realness or the natural beauty of that particular moment or object.

Peggy photographs her subject matter and later works on her paintings in a mix of representative and impressionistic styles in her studio, using acrylic paints.
Peggy has a Diploma of Design majoring in painting and ceramics from Unitec Design School and over the last 12 years has taught art, fashion design and ceramics to High School students and adults.
