Bio

Award-winning artist, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before transitioning to fine art. Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. Peggi paints animated figures, and breaks away from conventional still life with playful paintings of everyday scenes: cosmetics, the occasional coffee cup or slab of butter. Peggi's work gives us a new appreciation of daily life. Peggi's daughter Mary and her husband live in Appleton, Maine.
