Peggy was born and raised in Colorado and now living in Southwest Colorado, she attended Colorado State University receiving a BFA in Illustration. Married to an equine veterinarian, raising two children and breeding, raising and training horses for thirty years left little time to pursue a career in art until the last eight years or so. Now represented by top art galleries with an emphasis on contemporary western art around the country.
“My work has been categorized as Contemporary Western. Traditional and well honored western subject matter with a different perspective and expressive interpretation. Using a more graphic approach to composition and design that comes from my illustration background I try to describe the intensity of the west as it was lived in the past and still is today by a select few weathered souls. Portraying the animals that still grace our western states and those that care for them.” – Peggy Judy
