Peggy-Lynn holds a Bachelor Degree from the Nova Scotia College Of Art and Design University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She has maintained a studio in Bedford for the past 26 years.
Peggy- Lynn specializes in portraiture and the figure (people and animals) but is comfortable painting and drawing all subjects.
For many years Peggy-Lynn worked professionally doing commissioned portraits and illustration throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality, but now focuses more on sharing her knowledge with others, teaching semi-private classes (4 -5) students per class to children, youth and adults.
The semi-private class setting, allows her to focus on what she enjoys most about teaching. Peggy-Lynn enjoys being able to facilitate each student’s individual learning style, and artistic voice, by connecting directly with each student personally.
Most of her students continually return each year, many staying enrolled up until graduating high school. Peggy-Lynn has had the pleasure of watching her students' abilities expand and evolve, with some going on to pursue careers in creative fields. Many of Peggy-Lynns Students have received awards from Youth Art Exhibits in the local Bedford, Halifax area.
