About Pegi


Although a native of Massachusetts, Pegi Newton has spent most of her life in the Carolinas.   She recently moved to Sun City Hilton Head after spending many years in the "upstate" ofSouth Carolina  in Greenville.  Her love of painting began several years ago when she enrolled in an oil/acrylic class at a local college hoping that it would be helpful with craft painting for her church bazaar.  The class accomplished the immediate goal and was the beginning of a avocation that has steadily grown.   Almost as much as Pegi loves to paint, she loves to travel, and attending workshops has allowed her to visit to some pretty special places. Recent workshop locations include California, New Mexico, Maine, Scotland, Ireland Italy, France, Greece and Peru.  She traveled to Newfoundland as an Artist-in-Residence at Pouch Cove in June 2005.  These workshops and many others closer to home have allowed her to study with a number of well-known artists – Stephen Quiller, Tony Couch, Frank Webb, Cheng Kee Chee, Tom Lynch, Eric Weigardt, Margaret Martin, Judy Morris, Betty Carr, Charles Reid, Don Andrews and Bill Jameson .  She has also studied with some very talented Greenville area artists, Jo Ann Taylor, Julia Peters and Glen Miller. 
Pegi is a member of the Sun City Art Club and participates in many of the club's activities. Her paintings are in collections throughout the southeast United States as well as England.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Pegi lives and paints on the South Carolina coast and when not attending workshops, she enjoys traveling to visit her daughters and their families in Virginia and Ohio.
