Drawing & Painting from Life
Over four decades ago Peggy Howe chose Charleston for her home and to be a full time artist. Her artistic endeavors had to be shared as she raised and cared for her family. Now that these responsibilities are done and it is full speed ahead making art. She now works from her home in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
Howe has always drawn and painted from life, be it the human figure, landscape or still life. The figure has emerged as her primary focus, as you can see. Howe’s figures have been selected for inclusion in several public collections, including Charleston’s Gibbes Museum of Art, the South Carolina Arts Commission collection and the South Carolina State Art Museum in Columbia.
