Peggi Kroll-Roberts’ painting 

Award-winning artist Peggi Kroll-Roberts (b. 1954), was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before transitioning to fine art.  Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings, and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. 

Peggi paints animated figures and breaks away from conventional still life with playful paintings of everyday scenes: cosmetics, the occasional coffee cup, or slab of butter. Peggi’s realist impressionist and expressionist styles are striking and she has won multiple fine art and plein air awards in addition to the Blackwell prize in painting.

The cost is $45 for the entire series of four weekly classes supporting LPAPA. Register at the link here.
