Award-winning artist, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before making the transition into 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.
Inspired by her children she paints beach scenes and other aspects of their lives. She also breaks away from the conventional still life by painting scenes of cosmetics and the occasional coffee cup or slab of butter. Peggi’s work gives us a new appreciation of our own daily life.
Peggi currently teaches still-life and figure workshops with Plein Air Liaison, PAL atelier™ in California, Scottsdale Artists’ School in Arizona, as well as several other locations across the country and abroad.

In Peggi’s upcoming mini-workshop, Peggi will demonstrate her approach to measuring, drawing, and painting an accurate figure and multiple figures into a painting. This workshop is excellent for beginning to advanced students alike, in a comfortable and easy-going atmosphere.
We will draw the figures from photos and life while in a populated park setting along the water. We’ll be gathering lots of reference material. Once we’ve completed some practice with drawing figures, we’ll then incorporate them into a painting by placing them on a horizon line in perspective.
