About the artist


Peggy Murray, originally from California, has lived in New Hampshire for more than 30 years.  She taught human development for a dozen of those years at UNH, and was a reading/writing consultant in schools around New England.  Following the adoption of a family of three from Costa Rica, Peggy took a break from teaching and took up drawing and oil painting in the studios of Adeline Goldminc-Tronzo and Michael Tronzo.  She never looked back.  Her years there were formative to her aesthetic explorations and knowledge of the great pantheon of artists on whom she relies for inspiration and learning.  These days she explores drawing and painting primarily in her studio but also takes great pleasure in joining plein air painter pals for day and weeklong trips.  She has lent her teaching and artistic skills to nonprofit programs in the Seacoast, including Oyster River Players, Arts in Reach, Art in Recovery, and ART Connects NH and Chase Home.

Please contact Peggy with any questions regarding prices, availability of work, or commissions. Thank you!
