Fredericksburg Branch

November: Peggy WickhamPeggy Wickham

From Peggy: Although some of my earliest memories are of making art, I started painting in 1976. While raising our family, I finally I got my BS in Art Education with a focus in painting in 1993. After this, I painted privately until January of 2010, when I began to offer my work for sale. My paintings are unique and beautiful, yet affordable. My goal is to make it possible to have beautiful art in your home, no matter what the budget. I try to put "something a little more"—a sense of mystery and/or magic, if you will—into my work so that it expresses the immense joy I feel in the subjects I paint or use as inspiration for my work. I am a member of Brush Strokes Gallery in historic downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia.
