New Mexico native Peggy Trig grew up on cattle ranches in the northern part of the state. After studying fine art at UT in Austin, she received her degree in Fine Art Education from UNM and then she spent 23 years teaching high school art in Albuquerque. She and her partner Mike now reside in the small town of Questa just north of Taos. Peggy treasures the landscape of New Mexico, painting the high contrast of light with bright acrylic paint. Her paintings sing with energy and movement truly reflecting the land of enchantment.
