About Peggy Blood

Peggy Blood Artist Statement:

My creative works are composed of vibrant bright hues and muted darks. Each painting tells a story about life observed in the US or through my travels. Many of my painting have multi-views of different experiences in one composition; the viewer is led from one area to various related shapes. Most works are of mixed media; natural and tangible objects that overlap with rhythmic motion and streams of colors for an expressionistic type of genre painting.
