About Peggy Odgers

Artist's Statement:

Peggy has painted in oil, pastel, acrylic, and watercolor since childhood. Her greatest challenge and best rewards are with watercolor, so she has explored in this medium persistently. She has worked to find the balance and control of paint and water, but enjoys the surprises that occur from allowing the paint to follow its own path. She is most interested in expressing the human figure, its moods and body language through color. Artist Milton Avery has been one of her inspirations.

Peggy loves experiencing the mysteries of art and feels she will never say, "I know everything now. Nothing left to learn." She feels fortunate to have mentors and teachers as well as artist friends for their encouragement, interest, inspiration and camaraderie. She studies with Ruth Ellen Hoag, William Lawrence and Ruth Armitage.
