In this, her third Arts Station collection, inspiration comes from nature and from the appeal of landscapes in art. Recreating these ideas in more abstract form create compelling images.

Peggy has explored a variety of mediums to express her inspirations; acrylic, watercolour, alcohol ink and mixed media.
