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 27 years.
Peggy- Lynn specializes in portraiture and the figure (people and animals) but is comfortable painting and drawing all genres.
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 students per class) to children, youth and adults.
The semi-private class setting allows Peggy-Lynn to closely connect to each student one on one during the creative process, while facilitating each student's individual learning style.
Most of her students, children and adults continually return each year, with children and youth 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.
