"Peggy Ferris was formally trained in art and design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Holland and at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Her return to the fine arts followed on the heels of a long and successful career as a graphic designer. Breaking free of the regimentation of graphic design, her work is loose and unplanned, but her designer’s eye for color and composition prevail. Inspired by the energy and vitality of the urban landscape and the designed world, she uses architectural forms as a structuring compositional device. Spontaneous gestural strokes interrupt and punctuate these forms, and add an unexpected organic element. She currently works in acrylic and mixed media on a synthetic paper called Yupo, and on canvas.
Peggy’s work is shown throughout California and she was recently featured in the Los Angeles Art Show and the Bakersfield Museum of Art. She was also featured in a major solo show at the San Luis Obispo Art Museum in San Luis Obispo, CA. Her work is held in public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe."
