Peggy Sowden

Peggy’s love of painting and wild places began as a child. Always encouraged by her mother—a landscape painter—to look, explore, and interpret what she saw, Peggy developed an early appreciation for the art process.

Her father, an avid outdoorsman, took her family into the wilds of British Columbia, and from these summer adventures seeds were sown for a love of wilderness. Peggy studied visual arts in high school, worked as a naturalist, attended fine art school, worked as veterinarian, and painted the BC coast for many years; her two interests of art and nature are interwoven in a lifelong passion.
