About the Artist
Woodturning has become a passion of the former fine arts sculptor and artist. These days she spends her time in her studio creating unique works of woodturned art from the wonderful species available in the area as well as from exotic hardwoods of special character. Her works include a wide range of ideas from simple bowls to designer art pieces. Most people recognize her for her platters with the carved and metal painted texturing. Rim enhancements are a trademark of the artist. Hollow forms are also one of the many favorite subjects. She has perfected finishing with cyanoacrylate or better known as CA glue and achieves a highly polished and durable finish on larger pieces. This finishing technique has been used widely on smaller objects such as wooden pens for many years but few have been able to master the technique on a larger surface. Peggy is an alum of The Atlanta College of Art (Now SCAD) and was an Honors Student at Georgia State University where she studied to become an Art Educator. Her credits as a sculptor include work on the movie "Freejack" staring Emelio Estavez and Mick Jaggar as well as having been the creator of the Pinwheel Project at Tula in Buckhead. She has received numerous awards of excellence both in fine arts and as a woodturner. Her works are in private and corporate collections throughout the country.
